Event description

Description

Camp United Nations for Girls is a political leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 17 to international politics and the work of the United Nations. The program begins with a lesson on the history of the United Nations and its purpose. This is followed by an explanation of the structure, leadership and the rules of procedure of the United Nations starting with the General Assembly and subsidiary organs. Participants learn about the specific work undertaken by the United Nations’ boards, commissions, committees, councils and panels and working groups. Prior to convening the General Assembly, each participant will be assigned a country and solve geopolitical challenges in regional work groups. When the General Assembly convenes delegates will give speeches, negotiate with other delegates, caucus and propose resolutions along with amendments before voting on a resolution.

Camp United Nations for Girls is ideal for girls with an interest in politics. The delegate fee covers all program materials, snacks and a GIP logo shirt. For additional information visit our website at www.girlsinpolitics.com, email info@girslinpolitics.com or call +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2.

Answers to frequently asked questions.

Is the registration fee refundable? The registration fee is non-refundable unless the organizer cancels the session. If a participant is unable to attend a session a credit will be placed on file that may be used at any time for a future program. The credit does not expire.

Do students bring lunch? Yes, students will bring lunch. Apples, bananas, oranges and granola bars will be available throughout the day. There will also be a water station in the meeting room. Due to the increasing number of students with nut allergies we ask that no student bring nuts or nut- based products to the class.

What is the dress code? Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing. Each participant will receive a GIP logo t-shirt that may be worn during the session. We carry sizes youth medium through adult medium.

Do parents attend? The sessions are drop-off sessions and parents/chaperones are welcome to wait in hotel lobby or any of the lounge areas of the hotel.

Is this a partisan program or supported by a political party? No, the Girls in Politics Initiative is an independent organization that is self-funded through the fees generated from hosting sessions. The curriculum is civic education.

Is financial aid available? Financial aid is available on a first come, first serve basis. Email finance@girlsinpolitics.com to for all financial aid inquiries.

Who are the instructors? Our Lead Instructors are women that currently or have previously worked in government or electoral politics. Our support staffers are current or former licensed teachers. Our instructors and support staff have criminal background checks and WWC cards.
