Montessori Model UN is a division of Youth For a Better World, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, recognized as an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.  Our Mission is to Inspire and Empower Youth. We have two principal programs, Montessori Model UN (MMUN) and Youth Impact! Forum. We also provide Teacher and Parent programs so that they can understand how to support the intellectual and social growth of the youth in their classrooms and homes.

ABOUT US

The MMUN program involves year-long classroom or after school study, participation in mid-year working sessions and social meetups with global peers, and then culminates in a multi-day global education simulation experience that enables students in upper elementary and middle schools to learn about the operations of the UN and its role as the world’s largest international peacekeeping and humanitarian organization. In addition, MMUN provides an opportunity for young people to: 1) learn about cultures, governments and peoples of nations throughout the world. 2) apply research, writing and communications skills, 3) develop critical thinking, problem solving and evaluative skills, 4) debate current global issues and world problems, 5) practice and use leadership skills in real life global situations, and 6) understand the need for peace and conflict resolution throughout the world.
