YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties Invites Local Middle and High School Students to Model United Nations Interest Sessions
In an effort to build the global leaders of tomorrow, today, the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties, a cause-driven nonprofit charitable organization, is hosting two interest sessions for 6th – 8th grade and 9th – 12th grade students about the YMCA’s Model United Nations (Y-MUN) II, a three-day practical learning conference in mid-January held at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center.
Y-MUN II is designed to introduce students to the operation and structure of the United Nations while providing them with an opportunity to actively learn about world cultures and debate issues of international importance. Students will participate in conflict resolution, public speaking and coalition building, in addition to making new friends and being exposed to new ideas. Priding itself on its uniqueness as a student-run conference, the program provides an unprecedented opportunity to allow young people to grow and develop as communicators, researchers, negotiators and leaders.
Interest sessions are scheduled for the following dates/locations:
- Monday, October 21, 7 – 8 p.m. at the Cherry Hill Public Library, located at 1100 Kings Highway North in Cherry Hill.
- Tuesday, October 22, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Burlington County Library, located at 5 Pioneer Boulevard in Westampton.
