BELLARMUN is a two-day Model United Nations conference for middle-schoolers, hosted at Bellarmine Preparatory School by Bellarmine’s Model United Nations program. This year the conference is taking place on Saturday, April 13th and Sunday, April 14th. Model United Nations is a great opportunity for students to learn principles of diplomacy, global cooperation, and communication as well as gain public speaking, writing, and researching skills.
At BELLARMUN, students begin by attending workshops taught by experienced Bellarmine delegates where they learn the basics of Model United Nations and research the country they will be representing. Following the workshops, delegates are ready to jump into committee sessions where they will discuss global topics and issues that are relevant to the world today. Students will also have the chance to take a break from the formality of Model United Nations to attend a fun delegate social!
Saint Patrick Catholic School middle school students have participate in Bellarmun since its inception in 2017. Read the reflections of some of the 2017 participants from Saint Patrick Catholic School.
