Students are participating in these Model UN Student Conferences:
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.
