Here at Global Youth Support Center we are advocates for being a good global citizen, meaning not only being aware of what is happening around us domestically but also globally, as things happening across the world has an impact domestically. One of the ways we promote these values is by hosting a Model United Nations (UN) conference.
What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here. Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country. For example, a student may be assigned the Republic of Tanzania and will have to solve global topics such as climate change from the policies and perspectives of Republic of Tanzania. Students will have to make speeches, debate, negotiate, write resolutions, and lobby to get them passed.
Students gain confidence in public speaking, debate and negotiation. Students learn about World issues and feel part of the worldwide community. Model UN is different from Speech and debate in that student have to work in depth with students from other schools to solve issues together rather than debate against them. Student also have the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the topics they discuss over the duration of the conference.
