Why We Love Model United Nations
High School Teacher
"The Virtual MUN program has really helped our students' competence and public speaking skills. I think it will translate into good skills for them to have in the workplace tomorrow."
High School Student
"My favorite part is meeting new people and being able to engage with them in conversations about diplomacy. It's nice to have a place where you can talk to like-minded individuals and learn with them."
"It brings me such joy to see my students go from day one to our last day in class and see their improvement in public speaking and how that's raised their confidence."
