Hesby Oaks Leadership Charter –

Home of the 19th Secretary-General Melissa Moon

Make new friends while you develop your leadership skills. The Model United Nations program at the Y is designed to give an introduction to world issues in a way that is fun and intriguing. The delegates meet with other middle school students throughout the state and practice diplomacy and even represent a country at a state-wide summit.


Meetings will occur at the local schools on a weekly basis, with the exception of a few weeks (TBD) where the meeting will occur at the East Valley Family YMCA for the purpose of elections and other large group work


Conference Dates:

Model UN Training Conference: March 20th - 22nd, 2020 – Camp Pali Mountain, San Bernardino

19th MUN Summit: April 23rd - 26th, 2020 – Sheraton Gateway LAX – Los Angeles


Meeting Date and Time:  Hesby Oaks - Tuesdays 1:45p - 3:00p


If you have a child who’s interested in the political process and wants to learn more about international relations, diplomacy, and critical thinking, our MUN program is an ideal extracurricular activity for them.

Students, called “ambassadors”, participate in the program with their peers. Student delegates receive an up-close and personal understanding of how our government works by being empowered to:

  • Give public speeches
  • Debate international issues
  • Participate in committees
  • Attend statewide social events and dances

The four-month program culminates in May when delegates from around the state meet to establish their own student-run United Nations.

Not only are these great programs to help kids develop friendships, leadership and critical thinking, but also they learn that that their voice is powerful and, together, they can make a difference.
