The students participate in two Working Sessions in English where they apply committee protocol to pressing societal questions with their peers, engaging them to think creatively about global issues that specifically affect young people while gaining confidence in the process.
Students become socially familiar with the MMUN international peer community while they have fun together at social events like Community Meet-Ups where they have informal exchanges and do activities which contribute to their sense of belonging to a larger international community beyond their classroom.
Teacher and Parent Coordinators registered for the program, also have the opportunity to meetup twice within the year to discuss best practices with MMUN staff and other coordinators who are also preparing students.
Parents, Observers and Chaperones are supported with workshops on topics such as Fostering Global Ambassadorship, Practicing Negotiation Outside of Committee, which offer guidance for how to help their student delegates as they prepare for committee debate and negotiation.
To culminate the program, students attend an international conference of their choice where they work together and socialize (over 8 days for an online conference and 4 for onsite conferences). The final result is a transformational experience as they negotiate with their peers on the solutions to world problems, witnessing the impact of their voices and vision.
