FOUNDATIONS PROGRAM

The Foundations Program is an accessible and interactive service created by CAHSMUN to prepare students for the world of Model UN. Facilitated by the Secretariat team, this program focuses on helping delegates learn more about how Model UN works and providing assistance to new clubs. This is accomplished through various in-school presentations and workshops that will be held throughout the year leading up to the conference itself.

Students looking to participate in a Model UN conference will greatly benefit from the Foundations Program. Our service is designed to give students a better insight into conferences through meaningful, in-person interactions with experienced members of the Model UN community.

By bringing this program to the students, CAHSMUN hopes to build a stronger foundation for prospective delegates and uphold its three pillars of international consciousness, academic orientation, and accessible service.

HISTORY

The program was first started in 2015 as an extension of our financial aid program. Revolving around the primary goal of increasing accessibility to Model UN, it kicked off with the presentations that now form the basis of today’s Foundations Program. Over the course of the past few years, each Secretariat team has worked diligently to improve this initiative and build upon the responses received from participating schools.

In last year’s Foundations Program, the CAHSMUN Secretariat coordinated in-school presentations at various schools across the lower mainland. These presentations included lessons on Rules of Procedure and a mock committee session. At the conference, newer delegates were also given the opportunity to participate in a beginner’s workshop that detailed more about committee procedures.
