Jan. 2, 2013 - PRLog -- NEWBURY PARK, CALIF.--The Miller Family YMCA of Newbury Park is currently forming its Model United Nations delegation made up of middle school students in the Newbury Park area. A kickoff meeting will take place Wednesday, January 9 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Miller Y (320 Via Las Brisas, Newbury Park).

         Model UN is a statewide program that brings middle schoolers together to learn about other cultures. "Each YMCA forms a delegation that then selects a country to represent," says Jessie Bringelson, Miller Y membership, family and teen director. "The delegates learn about the country and the issues that are important to its people. Besides their new-found awareness of cultures from around the world, delegates receive training and coaching in public speaking and conflict resolution."

         Delegates in California meet in March at Camp Roberts near Paso Robles for training. In May, over 800 delegates from around California meet in Orange County for an annual conference where they debate and establish policies, treaties and resolutions, focusing on international issues much like the real UN.

         For more information about the Miller Y's Model UN program, contact Jessie Bringelson at jbringelson@millerymca.org, 805-480-0309. Delegations are also forming at the Conejo Valley YMCA, 805-523-7613 (serving Thousand Oaks and Moorpark), Simi Valley Family YMCA, 805-583-5338 and Triunfo YMCA (serving Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Oak Park).
