Robbinsdale Middle School
Youth in Government Model UN Parent Meeting
Monday February 6th, 6:00- 7:00pm at the New Hope YMCA
Model United Nations has students focus on role-playing an “adopted” country, students in grades 7-12 practice compromise and diplomacy to attempt to solve pressing global problems. As students simulate international organizations, they begin to find new answers to tough questions, to learn and respect opposing points of view, and to utilize the tools of peaceful change.
This program creates a working replica of the United Nations, conducted almost entirely by students. Students can participate in a model General Assembly, International Court of Justice, Economic and Social Council, Security Council, Human Rights Council or Conference Newspaper.
Meetings are Tuesday nights from 6:00- 7:00pm starting Feb 14th.
At the meetings we will do all the prep work necessary for the conference, including writing the proposals.
The conference will be March 30th- April 1st at the Marriott Downtown Minneapolis. Conference fees are $375, but there are many opportunities for scholarships, fundraising, and financial aid, which will be discussed at the meeting. Registration is open now at mnyig.org
