Join us on September 22 for stimulating debate, intelligent conversation, and the opportunity to learn more about the world of Model United Nations.
Model United Nations is a fun and dynamic atmosphere for students to learn about issues impacting people around the world. More than textbook learning, students learn the dynamics of debate and working together to form resolutions.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin, founder of The University of Pennsylvania. Model UN is definitely an “Involve me and I learn” experience!
The conference is open to those in grades 7 through 12. We hope to see you there!
