The Model UN experience serves more than 2,000 high school students each year. The youth-driven conference is planned and executed by high school students and provides an unprecedented simulation of the UN that highlights the themes of collaboration, cultural understanding, and problem solving that are at the core of the organization’s real-life goals.
