Dec. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIF.--The Triunfo YMCA, serving Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Oak Park, will hold its first meeting of its Model United Nations program, designed for kids in sixth through eighth grades on Thursday, February 2  at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Sumac Elementary School YMCA facility (6050 Calmfield Ave., Agoura Hills).

   Model United Nations is part of the national YMCA Youth & Government program. Participants learn about cultural diversity, improve their public speaking skills and become more aware of global concerns.
   
   The Triunfo YMCA's Model United Nations will meet twice a month in February and March and then once a week through May. Participants get the opportunity to meet other teens from across the state by attending two conferences: a training conference at Camp Roberts in Paso Robles on March 30 through April 1 and at the Model UN Summit conference in Irvine on May 3  through May 6.

   During the main conference, student ambassadors take on the roles of UN members, chairs, and presiding officers. They discuss, just like in the real UN, international issues that have a global impact. "Delegates use what they have learned during several months of preparation and research as they perform their roles," says Jenna Grossman, Triunfo YMCA program director. "This experience gives kids a much better understanding of the world we live in."

       For more information, contact Jenna Grossman at 818-707-9622 or e-mail jgrossman@triunfoymca.org.
