HISTORY DEPARTMENT CLUBS
NORTH BERGEN HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY DEPARTMENT’S
CLUBS TO PROMOTE CIVIC MINDED CAREER READY STUDENTS
MODEL UNITED NATIONS - MODERATOR MR. MARING:
Model United Nations Team is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which is usually organized by a high school or college MUN club. At the end of most conferences, outstanding delegates in each committee are recognized and given an award certificate; the Best Delegate in each committee receives a gavel.
Thousands of high school students across the country and around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial research, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Every student gives speeches detailing their country’s position on the topic and offering possible solutions. MUN is a great learning experience exposing students to topics and real life problem solving.
THE FUTURE LAWYERS CLUB - MODERATOR MR. NIEVES:
The Future Lawyers club aims to provide its members with a first hand view of the American legal system. If you are interested in a career in law or simply enjoy critical thinking and persuasive arguments then consider the Future lawyers. Members will have the opportunity to work with a lawyer mentor who will help them prepare for mock trial competitions.
THE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT CLUB - MODERATOR MR. NIEVES:
The Financial Management club aims to provide its members with the tools needed for a future in investing in the Stock Market. If you have an interest in or questions about the stock market or investing in general they will be answered here. Members of the club will have the opportunity to compete in a simulated day trading competition at Stevens Institute of Technology. We placed 7th out of 25 schools last year. If you would like to help the club win or place higher join us at our meetings. More field trips and competitions will be added as the year progresses.
JUNIOR STATE OF AMERICA (JSA) - MODERATOR MR. RISHEG:
The purpose of the Junior State of America (JSA) is to strengthen American democracy by educating and preparing high school students for life-long involvement and responsible leadership in a democratic society. JSA was created by and for young people interested in what happens around them – from politics, to how government works, and contributing to their community. JSA has served as a place where students build leadership skills, learn civil debate, and strengthen their engagement through volunteering and activism.
YOUNG LEADERS - MODERATOR MR. RISHEG:
Our purpose is to inspire our youth to go above and beyond, and to follow their dreams to become the future leaders of America. Our vision is to provide our students the tools to recognize their leadership potential no matter what circumstances they face in life. This vision will be put into action by using powerful motivational speakers, leadership training, team building exercises, and goal-setting workshops. This hands-on approach will create an amazing leadership experience that will impact students for the rest of their lives.
