The High School Program
Do you want to offer something extra to your students? Do you want them to improve their English, public speaking skills, and learn more about the United Nations and the world of international diplomacy? Consider offering them the chance to participate in our High School Program. This program combines skills and knowledge that will last a lifetime!
Who are we?
United Netherlands is an organization that aims to create a platform in which talented and motivated young people challenge themselves and each other to develop their perspective on social responsibility and their full potential to act accordingly. The High School Program forms one of the ways where we bring young people together and invest in a generation of future leaders.
What is the High School Program?
The program consists of three training days at your school and a Model United Nations conference (HSPMUN) that will take place at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. During these training days our experienced trainers will teach your students how to negotiate like a diplomat, how to speech like a world leader, and how to combine these skills with the provided knowledge on international relations and the United Nations.
Your students will put these newly acquired skills and knowledge into practice during the Model United Nations conference in Nijmegen. UN-simulations, or Model United Nations (MUN’s), are conferences at which meetings held by the UN are simulated. Participants take the role of diplomats, to represent an allocated country and to strive together to find a solution for contemporary issues in the world. In this United Nations simulation, students will represent a country in a debate about actual United Nations topics and will work together towards a final resolution. It is important to mention that all United Netherlands activities are in English, therefore the High School Program is a full-English program.
