Overview of Teton County Model UN – November 12 & 13, 2018

Teton County Model UN (TCMUN) simulates the United Nations system. Student delegates from across the Northern Rockies play the role of diplomats from countries worldwide with the aim of passing resolutions on pressing global issues. TCMUN offers a unique opportunity to help students learn about a broad range of critical global issues while instilling democratic processes, parliamentary procedures and diplomatic behaviors.

TCMUN is a project of InterConnections 21 in collaboration with Teton County School District #1, Jackson Hole Community School and the Journeys School of TSS.
