Anne Kendrick represents Structures at the Sponsor Breakfast
The program is a year-long commitment that begins in the classroom, where students spend months researching their assigned countries and topics and practicing their negotiation and public speaking skills. Each student is responsible for writing a position paper and preparing a speech to present at the MMUN conference. Once they arrive in New York, they spend two days in caucus sessions with students from all over the world to draft resolutions on real world issues. On the third day, students travel to the United Nations building where they sit in the seats of actual UN delegates to vote on their resolutions. Several ECMCS students were selected to represent their committees by reading their final resolutions before an audience of nearly 2,000 student delegates, teachers, and parents. That's quite an accomplishment for any twelve-year-old!
As a builder in the I'On neighborhood, where this public charter school is located, Structures has always looked for ways to support East Cooper Montessori. But this school is especially close to Structure's heart: four children of Structures employees have attended the school, and two of them have traveled to New York as MMUN delegates in years past! Congratulations to all of this year's MMUN delegates!
