Middle School Model UN

The YMCA Model United Nations program for middle school students is a unique Model UN experience that culminates with an annual conference for delegates in grades 6-8.

Our program introduces delegates to the purpose and operations of the United Nations while providing them with an opportunity to actively learn about world cultures and debate issues of international importance. Delegates will actively participate in public speaking, conflict resolution, and coalition building, as well as expose themselves to a vast array of new ideas and new friends!

Rather than mimic other programs that focus strictly on competition, students are encouraged to take ownership in what they collectively produce and to celebrate character development, both of which aim at achieving our ultimate goal: the growth of each participant as a speaker, person, informed world citizen, leader, and collaborator.
