Keeping the Peace

The JGHS International and Italian Clubs traveled together to the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan on March 29. Students went on a guided tour throughout UN, including The General Assembly room where delegates from all 193 countries meet—and even received a private tour of the UN television studio! Students learned about the role of the UN, purpose of meetings, and more.

“It was interesting and eye opening to see the importance of the United Nations and all that goes into keeping peace in the world,” said junior Maria Papadopoulos, who is an officer of the International Club. “I would love to be a part of that in the future and could possibly see myself working in the UN.”
