Union County Freeholders Kimberly Palmieri-Mouded and Sergio Granados present a resolution to members of the Westfield High School’s Model United Nations Club congratulating them on being awarded the Outstanding Delegation Award at the annual the YMCA Model UN Program conference held in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The YMCA Model UN Program (Y-MUN) is a unique Model UN experience that serves more than 2,000 young people annually across the Mid-Atlantic States.
The conference provides an unprecedented simulation of the UN that highlights the themes of collaboration, cultural understanding and problem solving that are at the core of the organization’s real-life goals
The convention helps students develop their debate skills and find their voice, but in a one-of-a-kind conference that brings together servant leadership, public speaking and global problem solving rather than a singular emphasis on debate. Approximately 2,000 students from 80 Mid-Atlantic schools attended the conference this year
The Westfield High School Model UN program is run in conjunction with the Westfield Area YMCA.
