Attached you will find a flyer for our Model United Nations INFORMATIONAL MEETING; which will be held at Buchanan on February 20, 2013 from 5:30-6:30pm.
Model United Nations is a great leadership program for youth in grades 6th – 8th. The participants will learn various skills including public speaking, responsible governance, American democracy, but most importantly, the youth have an opportunity to network with other likeminded leaders from across California. The California YMCA Youth & Government Model United Nations program is a simulation of the “real life” United Nations. Participants in Model United Nations (MUN) will take part in some of the activities that the real UN participates in. Ambassadors 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.

If you know of any youth or families that are interested in this opportunity, please have them contact me or send them to the Informational Meeting on February 20.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
