Model United Nations

The Model United Nations program is a simulation of the "real-life" United Nations that gives middle school students an opportunity to learn about the world around them through leadership skill building and cultural awareness.

Our goal is to build skills in the areas of:

  • Communication, with a concentration in public speaking and conflict resolution;

  • Problem solving

  • Research techniques; and

  • Professionalism

while learning about cultural differences through current affairs, politics, economics, and diplomacy. Through hands-on participation in a variety of roles with their peers, they are given the opportunity to discuss international issues, discover other cultures, develop life-enhancing skills, and make new friends.
