When is the program?
Monday, June 26 – Friday, June 30 from 9:00am – 3:00pm Eastern Time.
This program is open to students in grades 6-12 of all Model UN levels. Students join us from all over the world! Delegates will be separated into two rooms – one each for middle school and high school students. Students of all skill levels are welcome to attend, from zero Model UN experience to veteran conference participants!
Can I register my student for just part of the program?
Partial program options are not available. Lessons learned each day build off of one another and culminate in a final full day Model UN simulation.
What is Model UN?
In Model UN, participants learn about a global issue and are assigned to represent a specific country. In a simulation that mirrors a UN committee session, students (or delegates, as we refer to them!) give speeches, engage in formal debate, collaborate and negotiate ideas, draft solutions (referred to in Model UN as “resolutions”), and vote. Using parliamentary procedure to structure debate (just like the real UN!), students have the opportunity to build skills for life and leadership while learning about a complex global issue.
