As members of the press, delegates become acquainted with the role media play in international affairs.

Press delegates are responsible for creating a conference newsletter to chronicle the experience of attending the Y-MUN II conference. On the first day of the conference, press delegates meet to decide which projects they would like to pursue. Throughout the remainder of the weekend, those projects are completed with the guidance of dedicated alumni staff members.

Becoming a press delegate does not interfere with students’ abilities to participate in the three simulations: General Assembly, International Criminal Court, or Crisis Resolution Committee. Press schedules are designed to work around times when students will be in debate.

To become a member of the press, students must volunteer before December 14th. Adult advisors can find the appropriate form for submitting press volunteers on the Forms page.

For an example of what press delegates create, take a look at one of theĀ newsletters from a previous conference.
