WHAT AGES IS THIS FOR?
WHAT IS MODEL UNITED NATIONS?
An opportunity to discuss international issues, discover other cultures, develop life-enhancing skills, and make new friends. The four-month program culminates when participants from across California meet at the Y’s Annual Model United Nations Summit.
WHY JOIN MODEL UNITED NATIONS?
Ask a Model United Nations veteran what attracted them to join.
Was it the thought of over 900 Jr. High school students from all over California converging on an army base for training conferences? Or the idea of taking over Camp Pali Mountain?
At first, they would probably admit that. For most, it starts with friendships, both old and new. Then the realization that they become a part of something bigger than themselves, bigger than their cliques from high school, manifests.
For many, it’s a glimpse into what High school is going to be like, exchanging ideas with the best and the brightest from all over the state and realizing the motto, Democracy must be learned by each generation.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A Y MEMBER?
All Youth and Government participants must be Y Members.
Youth and Government is a signature program and a cornerstone of the teen experience at our Y and in our community.
At the Y, we believe we impact young adults best when they are involved in a range of programs and experiences. We want our young adults not to just belong to some high school club but to feel like the Y belongs to them.
Our Y is so much more than a gym. We are a proud state-of-the-art facility that encourages our young adults to use in order to stay balanced and healthy.
If the cost of membership is prohibitive, our Membership for All Program, provides assistance to everyone, based on individual needs and circumstances.
No one should be denied access to their ability to pay. More information about Membership for All is included in this information.
