PELHAM, N.Y. -- Pelham resident Dylan Peer, a senior at Loyola School in New York City, has completed a six-week summer internship with the United Nations.

Peer served with the non-governmental organization "Temple of Understanding" and was required to complete a research project based on a "U.N. Millennium Development Goals" topic.

Some of the choices offered to the interns were sex-trafficking, women's rights, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and child mortality in the third world. Peer chose to research the sustainability of fresh water around the world.

As part of the internship program, Peer observed a U.N. Security Council meeting and a U.N. General Assembly "Economic and Social Counsel" meeting. On the final day of his internship he  provided a PowerPoint presentation of his research findings to the other participating interns.
