Model United Nations (MUN) is a student simulation of the proceedings of the United
Nations. Students, referred to as Delegates, are assigned a country to represent in one
of the UN’s numerous committees with pre-set topics to debate. They research the
background of their country, their country's position on the topics at hand, and prepare
notes on possible solutions to the problems faced. Students then convene at Model UN
conferences, which range in size from 100 to 5,000 delegates, to debate their assigned
topics with students representing the other UN member states. Much like the real UN,
the goal is to identify solutions, by negotiation and consensus, on which many countries
can agree.

Problems Solved
Many students are afraid to ask their teachers for help because they don't want to be
seen as dumb, or stupid. Instead, they look to their peers to help them with concepts
they're struggling with. However, many students' peers are also struggling and cannot
help each other, and consequently, both end up suffering. This club seeks to find these
students and offer them help, so that they can feel comfortable asking questions and
asking for help, and receive the proper answers and explanations. We would have
multiple helpers that would each specialize in different subjects across a wide variety
of classes covering almost all of the courses offered at Denmark, and would be available
for assisting others on their work if they are confused.
