Ninde Scholars
The Ninde Scholars Program provides academic support and college access services to a group of 7th-12th graders in the Oberlin City Schools, many of whom would be the first in their families to attend college. These scholars are provided with a paid weekly tutor from Oberlin College, and in return they commit to a rigorous college preparatory curriculum which includes evening workshops and participation in summer programming.  Parents/guardians are active in the program and provide crucial support and motivation for scholars to achieve their educational goals.

Ohio Model United Nations
Ohio Model United Nations is a three-day global education simulation experience that allows students in grades 6-12 to learn about the complete operations of the United Nations and its role as the world’s largest international peacekeeping and humanitarian organization. Through the process of role-playing, students become delegates of a selected nation in order to write, present and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world. Additionally, students present culturally based talent, participate in global education contests and debate current issues from the agenda of the United Nations.  Students are trying to produce solutions to problems for each country. Some topics are rights for women, gun control, education and government control.
