Why is Model UN important?


Model United Nations is an academic, global learning experience in which high school students:

  • acquire skills in public speaking, negotiation, and conflict resolution
  • develop an appreciation of differing viewpoints 
  • interact with peers in an atmosphere of respect and civility
  • learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations
  • represent a world nation as a delegate at a regional Model UN Conference
  • gain an understanding of being a world citizen

    Students are participating in these Model UN Student Conferences:

    • Georgia Southern University Model UN Conference: Jan. 27-29, 2022.
    • Winthrop University Model UN Conference: March 30-April 1, 2022

    The impact of the Model UN stays with the students for the rest of their lives. Many students keep tract of the country they studied for years to come and it has inspired some students to delve deeper into global studies and choose careers in foreign service.  Globally informed youth is more important now than ever before. 

    A special thanks to the Bargain Box for supporting the 2022 Model UN program. Their funding provided full scholarships to some students who would not have been able to participate, as well as large world maps for the classrooms.
