The Contra Costa County Model United Nations program is an exciting, educational way for high school students to learn about global issues. The Model UN simulates the activities of a UN body such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Students assume the roles of diplomatic representatives to the UN as they consider contemporary international concerns. Through this role-playing event, students develop a greater understanding of world problems and the complexity of international relations.

The Model UN also offers students an opportunity to gain substantive knowledge about the cultures, policies and countries they represent. They ca learn the mechanisms for peaceful resolution of disputes, while at the same time honing their interpersonal skills. They must practice writing and speaking skills in order to persuade delegates from other attending schools.

The Model UN differs from the Academic Decathlon and the Mock Trial programs in that it is not so much a competition as it is an event. Participants are commended for outstanding committee work and trophies are awarded to committee rapporteurs.
