The Mid-Pacific Model United Nations club hosted an island-wide conference on April 18, 2015. Fifty students from seven Oahu schools debated nuclear non-proliferation and the ISIS crisis. Model United Nations conferences take place throughout the world. They encourage students to develop empathy while creating feasible solutions to contemporary world issues.

During conference breaks, representatives from the Peace Corps and the East West Center shared travel and career opportunities with student delegates. Model United Nations delegates frequently choose careers in the foreign service, the Peace Corps, law, and international development agencies.
