Our Education Programs

UNA-USA San Diego Chapter, established in 1946, focuses on advocacy efforts and education programs through public events and collaborations. It thrives to serve as a resource for the residents of the San Diego area on the broad agenda of critical global issues addressed by the United Nations and its agencies: Peacekeeping, Human Rights, Humanitarian Relief, Economic Development, and Education. [See under GET INVOLVED for our various committees addressing these key subjects.]

Interested in our Educational Programs? We are proudly offering extensive educational programs for all ages; please see below an overview of our current programs.

UNA-USA San Diego Mobile Classroom

Our Mobile Classroom comes to your classroom so that your students, grades 5 – 8, can learn about the origins, goals, structure, human rights, and humanitarian work of the United Nations.  The interactive presentation includes a brief background to the establishment of the United Nations, its goals and structure, Rights of the Child, a 10-minute UNICEF film, Like Me, and more.

Model United Nations

In Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states to debate current issues on the organization’s agenda. Students hold speeches, prepare draft resolutions, negotiate with allies and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the conference rules of procedure—all to mobilize “international cooperation” in finding answers to problems that affect countries worldwide.

UNA-USA San Diego does not host its own MUN conference yet continues to be an advisor to our many universities and schools by offering training, speakers, and resources to make the MUN experience memorable. We are currently however preparing an Adult MUN to provide young adults and professionals the unique opportunity to experience the simulation of the United Nations that had formerly not been able to take part in MUN programs. If you are interested in being a delegate for this Adult MUN – tentatively scheduled for April 2014 – please contact our office or send us an email.
