Are you looking to participate in the exciting world of Model United Nations (MUN) next year? Or, are you wondering what Model UN is? MUN is an amazing extracurricular activity that will teach you about the world, develop new interpersonal skills, and connect you with amazing people from all walks of life. You will learn to research, speak publicly, think critically, and develop leadership skills. MUN is a simulation of United Nations procedures, and students in the two-week course will learn to role-play as UN delegates and engage in negotiations, discussions, and lively debates—the cornerstones of UN activity. 

In its first year, the Brentwood Middle School Model United Nations Delegation was victorious at conferences at Michigan State University, USC, and Stuyvesant High School in New York City, and this year they have exceeded expectations, winning awards at Horace Mann, The Ursuline School, and Boston University Academy. Along the way, they learned about current events, international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. Along with knowledge of the world we live in, MUN students develop skills in public speaking, persuasion, research, negotiation, and critical thinking.
