For Middle School Students California YMCA Youth & Government has offered the Model United Nations (MUN) program to middle school students throughout the state since 2001. Middle school students or "delegates" will come together in delegations and participate in the program with peers from across California. They are given the opportunity to discuss international issues, discover other cultures, develop life-enhancing skills, and make new friends. This year, MUN is a 12-week program which will include a one day training conference and a 2 night MUN Summit: one each in the North and South. At the Summit, delegates will represent assigned countries as ambassadors and work to solve global issues with the skills they have acquired.
The hands-on programs of California YMCA Youth & Government provide positive opportunities and experiences for youth. Participants strengthen their communities by becoming civically engaged, active and responsible contributors who are inspired and empowered to lead and create meaningful change. California YMCA Youth & Government prides itself in offering the following skills to help youth transition and succeed with ease from middle school through college graduation.
