Althoff Catholic Model United Nations is a club at at Althoff Catholic High School open to all students interested in politics, international affairs, diplomacy and problem solving. Students learn about other countries and their viewpoints, how to draft a resolution on an international affair based on those viewpoints, and how to defend those ideas in a diplomatic way through public speaking.
The team attends both the Fall and Spring sessions of the McKendree University Invitational Model United Nations program. The mission of Althoff Catholic Model UN is to give all of its member students a view into the international community's diplomatic process of solving pressing world problems. Students should come away with the ability to see a problem from various viewpoints and how to solve a problem by taking all those viewpoints into consideration.
