The goal of MUNI is to introduce Native American youth to the Model United Nations (MUN) program through online learning, participation in the National High School MUN Conference in New York City, and facilitation of Native American Model UN Clubs at high schools across the country.
Model United Nations provides an invaluable opportunity for youth all over the world to learn formal debate, essay writing, public speaking, problem-solving, and diplomacy by simulating the United Nations' proceedings. MUN teaches the basics of how policy is made on all levels of government through hands-on learning and first-hand experience.
"Students, referred to as Delegates, are assigned a country to represent in one of the UN’s numerous committees with pre-set topics to debate. They research the background of their country, their country’s position on the topics at hand, and prepare notes on possible solutions to the problems faced. Students then convene at Model UN conferences, which range in size from 100 to 5,000 delegates, to debate their assigned topics with students representing the other UN member states. Much like the real UN, the goal is to identify solutions, by negotiation and consensus, on which many countries can agree."
