What is Model United Nations? Well, there are several answers. The United Nations Association of the United States of America, gives a good explanation. It is an opportunity for students to "step into the shoes of ambassadors from U.N. member states to debate current issues on the organization's vast agenda." Their comments continue with some details of what that means.

Glenelg High School Model UN is a very interesting group of students who are interested in discovering how countries are able to solve some of those conflicts that we study in history class. Additionally, they work to prepare themselves to attend a Model UN conference during the year. At this point, we have attended one local, college-hosted conference each year. We are hoping to have the resources and the interest to expand. In 2004 we hosted a Model UN simulation in the 9th grade US History Honors and G/T classes. We hope to be able to host a local conference in the future.

What can you gain from Model UN? Besides the obvious answer of fun and camaraderie, there are important skills that can last a lifetime and even encourage a future career. Learn to be a problem solver, to negotiate, to think and speak on your feet. And most important for those of us planning to live in this global world, learn how it all works - and sometimes doesn't!
