We are proud to announce the 6th Annual Model African Union for high school students! This unique experiences provides students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to research and represent a given African country's interest in Parliamentary-style proceedings! This event is one of only a handful of high school African Union simulations in the country! Additionally, we provide a light breakfast and African lunch for all students. We also provide African entertainment during lunch. Finally, We do not charge any fees for schools to participate.

With 13 schools and over 165 students having participated last year, this event continues to grow and evolve. Join us!
