At Avenues our reason for existing is “to educate world-wise leaders uniquely equipped to understand and solve global-scale problems.” It follows, then, that our students must be future literate–that is, equipped with the capability to navigate an increasingly complex, interconnected, and uncertain world and, in so doing, inspired to forge adaptable global paths toward sustainable, regenerative futures.
After their debut in BRAMUN, Avenues Model United Nations team was awarded the Best Delegation in POSMUN. Congratulations!
