Meet our program advisor, Chris Talamo, and his amazing work.
Education in Motion
Model UN veterans are familiar with the transformational impact that MUN has on a student's academics. MUN provides students with an awareness of the world they live in as they explore the diverse issues debated in diplomatic circles every day. It also helps build self-confidence and public speaking skills, essential life skills regardless of whether the student enters the diplomatic corps. Finally, MUN is a community of students. At schools, at conferences, and even around the world, becoming a MUN delegate introduces students to new friends and new challenges.
Education in Motion (EIM) is a non-profit organization that believes in the power of extracurricular activities to shape a student's life. Our organization is led by five MUN veterans who have seen that impact first-hand and want to share these opportunities with more students. To maximize opportunities for student development, we help create affordable MUN conferences led by high school students.
For more information on EIM and how to start a conference at your school, please visit their website at www.edinmotion.org.
