The MontessoriMUN Jo was established in 2018, and is continuing to grow. In this model united nations, students ages 13 and up simulate realistic United Nations meetings and discussions over a course of three days. Each student will represent a country and their stance on the topic of discussion. Students learn speak up confidently, come to rational solutions and acquire global awareness. They gain experience in writing, public speaking, debate skills, and research that allows them to thrive not just in conferences, but in the classroom setting as well.
