Why is Model UN important?
Model United Nations is an academic, global learning experience in which high school students:
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. That is why we sponsor students from all the public Beaufort County High Schools and one local private high school to attend two regional conferences, one hosted by Georgia Southern University and one by Winthrop University.
A special thanks to the Bargain Box for supporting the 2023 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.
If you’d like to volunteer by sharing your knowledge of a world nation, or region with high school students, please fill out the Volunteer Form or contact WACHH at firstname.lastname@example.org.
