It has become increasingly evident how seemingly isolated international events can quickly and drastically spill across borders and impact the entire world. At the same time, the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of strong leadership and international cooperation during challenging times. At IC21, we engage bright young people in solving incredibly timely issues such as world health, international peacekeeping, and environmental degradation through our annual Model United Nations conference.

 

The 2020 Teton County Model UN (TCMUN) conference is planned for November 8 – 10 at the Jackson Hole High School. Over 200 students from 12 regional schools will come together to practice consensus building, negotiation, critical thinking, and leadership skills. Prior to the conference, we plan to host a community reception on Sunday, November 8, at 7:00 p.m. at the Center for the Arts. Please join us to engage with pressing global issues while supporting our local and visiting students!

For more detailed information about the conference, visit our TCMUN blog. We are closely following the Covid-19 response recommendations to ensure the health and safety of our participants. If necessary, we will be converting TCMUN to a virtual experience.

We need you! Each year we couldn’t put on such a great conference without the local volunteers who help us out. From picking up lunch for the delegates, helping to set up for the reception, donating snacks to the conference, we are so thankful for the parents and community members who work with us to put on this conference for our regional students.
