The Model United Nations program is a simulation of the United Nations that gives middle school students an opportunity to learn about the world around them through leadership skill building and cultural awareness. Our goal is to enhance student’s public speaking know-how while learning about current affairs, politics, economics and diplomacy.
Participants will meet for weekly delegation meetings starting in October and have the chance to attend two statewide conferences. There, they will give speeches, debate international issues, participate in committees, make new friends and attend statewide social events!
The Model Legislature & Court program provides high school students the opportunity to experience democracy in action and to find their voice while fostering a strong sense of civic responsibility.
Weekly delegation meetings consist of legislation creation, understanding the ins and outs of the state legislature and court systems, philanthropic events, and service-learning projects. Through interactive civic engagement, students will further understand and appreciate the California state government.
Program runs from late August until late February. Delegations meet weekly and travel to three conferences per school year.
Meeting times and locations for both programs will be decided at the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
