In partnership with Best Delegate, IDEA Public Schools has pioneered the creation of a MUN League for High School students across 14 campuses for students to improve their leadership, debate techniques, public speaking skills, global awareness, and confidence to increase their college readiness. In 2014, a small group of students from IDEA Mission attended the MUN Institute. They returned with the lesson plans, presentations, and leadership skills to implement a high quality and sustainable MUN program. To date, more than 200 students have attended the MUN Institute and over 50,000 students have gained access to our Online Resources through the MUN Vault. This partnership, funded in part through grants, has enabled thousands of students to gain access to MUN resources.
