Global Classrooms – An innovative educational program that engages middle and high school students from districts throughout the region to learn in exploration of current world issues through interactive simulations and curricular materials. Global Classrooms cultivates literacy, life skills and the attitudes necessary for active citizenship. This annual program culminates with a Model UN Conference held at the University of Houston Downtown each spring where students can apply the knowledge, presentation and debate skills learned throughout the school year. Houston is one of just 24 major cities around the world to implement this exciting program in its secondary classrooms. Since its inception in 2002, Global Classrooms has reached as many as 5000 students in over 50 schools.
