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, delegates volunteer during Opening Ceremonies on the first day of the conference.


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