We’d like to highlight this outstanding activity for middle school students. The East Valley YMCA’s Model United Nations program is a simulation of the real-life United Nations, and comes highly recommended by our past participants. Student delegates research, debate and establish policies, treaties and resolutions focusing on international issues. It builds leadership, global awareness, and is nice on HS applications. Meetings held both at Reed and at the East Valley YMCA. Contact OSCAR LUZANILLA at: 818-763-5126 or via email at: oscarluzanilla@ymcala.org. More info also available on our Facebook Page.
