Kofi Annan recently said: "More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that, my friends, is why we have the United Nations." It is with that spirit that the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA has participated in the YMCA of California's Model United Nations program for the past five years. By all accounts, this has been a successful and rewarding venture. "Our delegation continues to grow each year and the kids are really what make the program thrive," said Vince Iuculano, Youth and Teens program director at the Y and recipient of the "Advisor of the Year" award for his participation in the program in 2006.
