Model UN:

What is Model UN? The Model United Nations experience allows students to participate as a real delegate in a conference situation where mock debates are held on current global issues. MUN is a great educational experience as well as a lot of fun. A good delegate combines academic talent with the ability to take the facts they have learned and creatively apply them in the actual Model UN proceedings. The best Model UN teams are made up of students who are bright, outgoing, enthusiastic and interested in global issues.

How do you join? Speak with our sponsors, Mr. Young or Ms. Caffey. We meet every Wednesday afterschool in A204 (Ms. Caffey's Room). Membership dues are only $30 for new members and $20 for returning members. Hope to see you there!
