Since our founding nearly forty years ago, the International Model United Nations Association (IMUNA) has aspired to equip young minds with critical thinking, public speaking, research, writing, and problem-solving skills through our engaging simulation environment.
Every year, more than 4,000 high school students attend at least one of IMUNA's conferences. They spend months preparing, researching, and writing from the perspective of a different nation than their own. They travel from one of more than 40 countries to put their preparation to work alongside peers from around the world. They return to school with a new perspective on global citizenship, enhanced debate and negotiation skills, and a voracious appetite for new learning.
IMUNA constantly works to improve our offerings, engage students, reach a broader and deeper community of educators, and provide thought leadership into the future of global issues education. Each one of our staff and Board members is devoted to building on the legacy of our organization, combining boundless energy and optimism with substantive rigor.
I invite you to explore the opportunities available through our organization, from attending a conference, to running one of the many classroom-based simulations we've created, to serving as a staff member or volunteer.
Please feel free to reach out to me with your questions, ideas and comments. I love to hear from educators who want to know more about our programming, alumni from years past, and others working to advance the cause of global issues education through simulation.
