Model United Nations Program


YLA Model United Nations Program

Model United Nations is good for –

  • those who are already informed on world issues and for those who are just getting started

  • those who are comfortable meeting new friends and those who are not and are ready to give it a try

  • those who are used to being away from home and for those who will be away from home for the first time.

Our Model United Nations program culminates in a three day experience at Mineral Wells, WV, offering windows on the world and international perspectives as teens represent nations trying to solve international issues. 

Model UN is a great way to learn about the world. I came into this program with no knowledge about the UN or my nation. I left with that knowledge plus the ability to think as my nation and a greater appreciation for other nations.


YLA’s Model United Nations is open to all schools. YLA staff will work with teachers and students to help assure participation is a positive learning experience.
