Olive Branch Network is established to create an extensive platform for the alumni of Tallahassee Community College Model United Nations and local community partners, for the purpose of professional and social networking. It is managed by the Tallahassee Southern Model United Nations Board of Directors. The main purpose of the network is to fundraise for the core mission of Tallahassee Southern Model United Nations (TSMUN) and Tallahassee Community College Model United Nations (TCC MUN).
Let’s get into the reason why we support those organizations.
What is TCC MUN?
TCC Model United Nations is an organization dedicated to provide students with the opportunity to practice international affairs and diplomacy at college level. Students who join this organization at Tallahassee Community College learn real-world skills that they can apply to future careers and in their career as a student. These skills include researching in-depth and complex themes, informational writing, public speaking, problem solving and, most importantly, communication.
TCC MUN is internationally and nationally ranked. Students attend conferences in the southeast region (Atlanta, GA and Gainesville, FL), as well as, an international conference in New York City. During these UN Mock simulations, they represent countries from around the world and debate real world topics to produce a resolution.
What is TSMUN?
TSMUN is an annual conference organized by TCC MUN students to extend the understanding of international affairs and diplomacy in middle and high schools. At this conference, TCC students become educators; creating a UN simulation for Middle and High School students. Our conference is held at the State Capitol of Florida, using Senate and House chambers to provide a motivating and inspiring atmosphere.
TSMUN also provides full-ride scholarships every year at Tallahassee Community College for successful participants of TSMUN conference.
Alumni members of Olive Branch Network previously participated in the activities of TCC MUN and organizational process of TSMUN conference. They understand the value of the experiences they gained during their college years, and continue to support today’s students who are gaining the same experiences.
On the other hand, our community Partners believe in the importance of International Affairs, Diplomacy and Communications. They support the mission of TCC MUN and TSMUN, as well as, their scholarship programs for High School Students.
