SERVICE - RESPONSIBILITY - COMMUNITY
Volunteers make our work possible. Hosting a Model UN conference requires dozens of volunteers equipped with specific knowledge and skills, particularly when leading committee sessions. We are able to fill the need thanks to dedicated Model UN teams of area colleges and universities like University of Miami, St. Petersburg College, Miami Dade College, University of South Florida, Florida International University, University of Tampa, and Eckerd College.
Through Foundations for Leadership's affiliation with the Butler Center at University of Miami and the Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy at Miami Dade College (iCED), students can earn volunteer and service learning credit. Students can also earn academic credit in a variety of courses in education, international studies, and government.
Required volunteer training is provided by Foundations for Leadership to ensure delegates and their teachers experience an educational conference of the highest standard.
We are working on expanding our volunteer program to increase direct outreach and support to teachers and students in under-performing public schools. You can help by donating today.
