The 21CSA Model United Nations camp is run by Diane Haleas, director of the nationally recognized Saint Ignatius College Prep Model United Nations team. Ms. Haleas will be the lead instructor for all sessions.
21st Century Skills and Model United Nations Leadership Camp will provide students ages 11-15 with the opportunity to develop essential skills through interactive, challenging, and fun activities in an open and friendly environment. Students will explore current events, global issues, and the basics of international diplomacy.
The student to instructor ratio is 7 to 1. Students will receive individualized instruction, work in small groups led by experienced instructors, and engage in both small group and large group UN committee sessions.
There is no experience necessary. Students (ages 11-15) will be grouped according to their age and/or ability and experience. The goal is to meet students where they are in terms of their skills and work closely with them to improve their communication, writing, negotiation, and critical thinking skills. Engaging in socially interactive activities helps to build confidence in students.
