Georgia United Nations Assembly (GUNA) is a simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about civics, effective communication, globalization and, multilateral diplomacy. In GUNA, students take on roles as ambassadors and participate in a simulated session of an intergovernmental organization. Participants research a country, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems. During a simulation they must employ a variety of communications and critical thinking skills to defend and advance the policies of their country.
This program is designed for students in grades 6 - 12. The program operates Junior GUNA (grades 6-8) and Senior GUNA (grades 9-12) concurrently with separate schedules. The program also includes a tour to the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library (Carter Center) where students will interact with members of the Carter Administration and the library staff.
