Mission and Impact

The United Nations Association of Greater Boston is dedicated to building a strong network of global citizens in the Boston area. We inform, inspire, and mobilize members of the community to engage with critical global issues central to the work and mission of the United Nations.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB) has dedicated 68 years to building a network of globally aware citizens in the Greater Boston area through our Model UN youth programs and community events. With a core staff of 5 employees and over 200 volunteers, we engage over 7,000 global citizens, of all ages, each year.

UNAGB inspires the next generation of global leaders through our Model UN education programs, which serve thousands of Boston, Massachusetts and New England school children each year. We reached around 5,500 students and teachers in nearly 100 schools in Boston and surrounding districts in the 2018-2019 academic year!

Through our free community events we also inspire community members to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals both locally and globally. Such programs include our U.N. Perspective Series (presented with Impact Hub Boston), the SDG Committee, International Women’s Day, panel discussions, partner events, and many more! We also host a series of signature fundraising events, including our UN Day celebrations and an international Global Citizens Gala with local diplomats and leaders. In the 2018-2019 year, we reached over 1,500 adults.
