Junior Model United Nations
Model UN is a unique, interactive program that brings world affairs alive for students. Through participation in Model UN simulations, students achieve global learning objectives. They are empowered to investigate the world, recognize different perspectives, communicate ideas to diverse audiences, and apply what they learn creatively during research, debate, and conference time. To participate in Model UN, school teams pick countries to represent in simulations of real UN committees. Adult advisors support students in researching and debating a variety of international challenges and their possible solutions.
