The 2015 Islamic Model United Nations competition is almost here!

This Model UN pits teams of 2-3 youth in an educational simulation and academic competition in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. The event promises to teach youth not only about politics, but also about how Islam plays into these important topics and the state of the world today. There are numerous prizes to be won, including a first place prize of $900! The competition is set to take place on January 10th, but registration will be closing VERY soon. If you are between the ages of 13 and 21 and have an interest in global affairs, be sure to reserve your spot now by speaking to one of the JIY members, or by emailing jiy@jaffari.org!

If you would like to sign up individually, email jiy@jaffari.org and we will match you with a team accordingly.
