The Model United Nations program is a rigorous program that allows scholars to explore the same topics debated by the nations of the world.  Galapagos scholars develop skills such as research, debate, negotiation and public speaking as they advocate for topics related to nuclear disarmament, human rights and environmental standards.  Through this program, Galapagos scholars have spent part of the summer training at Harvard University and will compete in United Nation simulations in Tennessee and Ohio.  Just recently, our group had the pleasure of meeting an actual Foreign Service Officer from The U.S. State Department.  This is a year long program and scholars must be receive an invitation to join.  There are fees related to travel.

Scholars or parents interested in this program should contact Mr. Lane at mlane@galapagoscharter.org .
