Save the Date and Volunteer for Model UN!
InterConnections 21 (IC21) will be hosting the 12th annual Teton County Model United Nations (TCMUN) Conference from November 12 – 14, 2017. All Journeys School 9-10 students will be representing the interests of different countries as they tackle global issues while taking part in this simulation of the workings of the United Nations. There are many opportunities for parents and friends of TCMUN to be involved as volunteers! On Sunday, November 12, we will host a reception from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. right here at Journeys School. Please consider donating your time to help set up and break down this reception, or bring food to share with other attendees. The main conference will take place at the Jackson Hole High School from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Monday, November 13 and Tuesday, November 14. We will be looking for volunteers for a variety of positions on these days: setting up, checking coats, helping at the registration table, picking up lunches, staffing the snack/break room, breaking down, etc. We will also be looking for volunteers to bring in food for the snack room.
In the coming weeks, you will receive an online sign-up form with time slots for each volunteer activity. If you have any questions or comments, please email Drew at email@example.com or IC21 executive director Lindsey Ehinger at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for helping execute another successful TCMUN Conference!
