In Los Angeles, an informed and participating electorate, which shares a common value system, is crucial for building strong communities. Teens need to understand that they can have an effect on their communities, their cities, and their country, through their actions. YMCA Model United Nations strives to give teens both the tools and the values, which will empower them to solve problems within the established system of government. Participants in YMCA Model United Nations are provided an arena to test their beliefs, to share their frustrations, to examine their ethics, and broaden their knowledge.
