Model United Nations Club

Sam Hudak, Clubs and Organizations Reporter

Do you like to debate? How about working with others to make decisions? If the answer is yes, you should think about joining the Model United Nations Club, more often referred to as Model U.N. Model U.N. is an organization, largely supported through Case Western Reserve University, in which students are each assigned a country to represent. Participants are responsible for accurately representing the ideals, values, and desires of their respective countries and for compromising with others to solve world problems and social issues. Each meeting is full of open discussions about real-world events and demonstrations to teach new skills that are often used within the actual United Nations organization.

This club is open to all grades (Freshmen through Seniors) and is a great way to become more involved within Lakewood High School. Additionally, it is an excellent way to learn many new skills. The president of the club, Milo Horseman, shares that at the next meeting participants will be learning how to write resolution papers. Model U.N. is for participants with all levels of experience. You do not need to have previous experience or be an expert to join! Rather, if it at all sounds of interest to you, simply come to a meeting to check it out! The next opportunity to do such is Wednesday, Oct. 5. Model U.N. is a great opportunity for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of other cultures, countries, or how those countries work together to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. If you’d like to participate, make sure to check it out!
