Youth In Government
Sponsor(s): Ms. Elmore, Ms.Gregory
In Model United Nations students act as delegations of countries that are members of the UN and debate topics of international importance at a mock United Nations Conference. Students will write resolutions on behalf of the country they are representing that address problems or conflicts in the world. Students will practice and use the skills of public speaking, debate, problem solving, and many other skills. The conference is highly academic and includes possibly 800 students from middle Tennessee high schools. It is a student run conference by the YMCA of Middle TN, Youth in Government Program. The 2017 YMCA Model UN Conference is November 3-5 in Murfreesboro.
