Be ready for MUN!
Become an unbeatable debator!
Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, 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, however, receives a gavel.
Thousands of middle school, high school, and college students around the world participate in Model United Nations, which involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.
Model UN, simply put, is a diplomatic competition. Students are, in most cases, assigned countries, and their job is to express their countries' beliefs in committee in order to pass favorable resolutions... In general, MUN is used more to foster those skills than to actually simulate the United Nations.
In the MUN and debate classes at Skillz students will learn the best way to prepare themselves for the MUN. In addition, they will practice speaking and debating under the guidance of an experienced MUN teacher.
