March Reach Out: Model UN

Are you interested in world politics, or conflict resolution? Do you love debating? If so, you should check out Model UN.

In their own words, UNA-USA's Model United Nations is "a simulation of the UN General Assembly and other multilateral bodies. In Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states to debate current issues on the organization's agenda."

If your school doesn't have a Model UN chapter yet, click here to learn how to set one up.
