Model United Nations
Social Studies & Theology Teacher
Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral bodies, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and decision making. The Saint Dominic HS club participates in various conferences in the Long Island area. Saint Dominic HS annually attends the Model UN at the Hofstra University Campus in March of each year
Three Big Reasons for Joining Model UN
- It’s a fun way of learning about the world. In this era of globalization, being globally aware is more important than ever. Also, having fun makes it easier to learn something and more likely to stick.
- It develops leadership skills. MUN is an exercise in research, public speaking, and teamwork. These are skills that you will need throughout your career, and MUN gives you a chance to practice them while you’re a student.
- You can leverage your MUN experience and network to get into college and find jobs. Admissions officers and job interviewers look for examples of leadership, and your experiences as a delegate or conference organizer will be good examples. You will also develop a network of alumni from your MUN club and people you’ve met at conferences.
