2014 Model United Nations @ REED MS
The California YMCA Youth & Government Model United Nations program is a simulation of the “real-life” United Nations Assembly. Participants in Model United Nations (MUN) will take part in some of the activities that the real U.N. participates in. Delegates will research, debate and establish policies, treaties and resolutions focusing on international issues, including disputes between countries, peace-keeping responsibilities, border crisis, stabilizing financial markets and dealing with hunger, disease and poverty.
Middle school kids will prepare after school to participate in this event. Meetings will be held starting January on Tuesday’s from 1:30 – 2:45. There is a training event trip to Camp Roberts in central California March 14-16 and then the main event, the Summit, is April 24-27 in Irvine CA.
*NOTE: Due to a scheduling conflict students involved in the Reed Musical will be unable to attend Camp Roberts in Central California March 14-16 and 7th Grade Music students are performing at Disneyland during the Summit on April 26. Therefore those students will be unable to enroll in the Model UN.
Cost: $850 for all meetings and two overnight events (scholarship available)
All costs are associated with the training, travel and Summit. All meals are included in the cost. Kids must stay at hotel during the Summit.
ALL APPLICATIONS must be received by December 18, 2013 to Mr. Kleinman in room 103.
Late applications will be placed on a waitlist.
Title I Students: We have scholarships available for Title I students. Students must turn in the application by the deadline and will be notified of the scholarship they will receive.
