The Maine Model United Nations Program hosts an annual conference where college and high school students participate in a simulation of United Nations procedures and enables students to practice organization, debate, conflict resolution and negotiation skills. The MeMUNC Conference is fun, challenging, and provides a hands-on experience in the workings of world diplomacy while researching and analyzing current events.
