HFWA Model UN 2018!

We are a student-led group of high schoolers who love debate, global politics, and learning how to solve complex problems. The Model UN team travels to conferences to meet with other high school students to negotiate, compromise and solve global issues. 

We attend a Title I Philadelphia School District High School, this means that our students and our school cannot afford to cover the expenses necessary. We need your help with conference costs!

This is our second year and when you donate to us you are forever ingrained in the beginning of something NEW and GREAT at Hill Freedman.
