Organisation Description:

IMDID is a non-profit corporation that was created in 2014 to maintain and administer youth mentorship and development programs. We sponsor guest speakers and panel discussion on current international issues, help train Model Diplomats at various high schools, universities and communities, and create other projects for the diplomatic upbringing of the youth, seeking other mechanisms through which we can become better corporate citizens and develop human capacities to unleash the potential of individuals. At IMDID, we are guided by the speed principles of Creativity, Professionalism, Humanism, Adding Values and Commitment, which define our organizational values, and form the base of our culture and social activism. Over the years, we have oriented series of plans to promote rapid socio-economic development. Thus we are well-positioned to help the youth. At our Global Youth Diplomacy Conference (GYDC), youths from across the globe play the role of foreign diplomats and participate in simulated sessions of the United Nations General Assembly, and other multilateral bodies in the UN system, as well as the African Union, European Union, which is a foundation to develop young adults in leadership skills and research, writing, public speaking and problem-solving skills that would be essential in a life-time and for diplomacy. Participating in IMDID Conferences encourages consensus building, conflict resolution and cooperation and the enhancement of leadership skills. Many of the world’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts participated in Model UN programs during their youth.

Participants in IMDID Conferences, known as model diplomats/delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body.
