Model Congress is a club that gathers weekly to prepare for conferences throughout the year. For these Model Congress conferences, students choose their committees and write bills to create solutions for public interest issues in the United States and around the world. To prepare for the conferences, students work together to research, write, publish, and debate their bills. It is not necessary to be passionate about politics, since most students can find at least one issue that sparks their interest. At the conferences, students work with other high school students to debate, amend, and vote for bills created by each participant. Run by college students, each conference is completely student-centered, and it is a great opportunity to meet people from all over the country!
