Welcome to the Model UN!
The Model UN is a club that is geared towards creating a better understanding of world problems and events. The Model UN provides students with the opportunity to take on the role of a United Nations member and participate in different discussions and conferences where the problems are debated. The club also provides students with the chance to improve their speaking and debating skills since they will be required to speak in front of large groups of people at conferences.
Meet the Model UN!

The Model UN meets every Thursday after school. Please check the calendar often to see upcoming events and meetings that we will be having.
