University Involvement with UNA-USA and Model UN

Staffing Conferences

collegeVolunteers make the UNA-USA Model UN program possible. Experienced Model UN participants at colleges and universities across the U.S. and around the world provide substantive expertise, planning support and on-site management of our teaching and learning conferences. 

Being selected to be a part of our conferences, whether in your local area or at our international middle and high school conferences in New York, takes commitment. Volunteering for a conference is more than a one day event. Our conference staffers help with training sessions, learn our style and rules, get to know their fellow volunteers, grade position papers, study and even write background guides, and work closely with our program staff and partners.

Senior secretariat members go even further, helping recruit and train volunteers, working with local teachers, and assisting in conference logistics. Please see information below regarding the Secretariat application and deadline:

UNA-USA International High School Model UN Conference  (GCIMUN)

UNA-USA International Middle School Model UN Conference (MSMUN)

Secretariat applications are due Thursday, January 15, 2015.

Colleges and Universities are vital to the success of Global Classrooms worldwide. They serve as local project partners in cities such as Beijing, Houston, Beirut, Tampa, Madrid, and Seoul where they are charged with implementing the program. In addition to staffing the Global Classrooms MUN conferences, many volunteer as year-long Model UN trainers – they visit schools and meet with students and teachers in their classroom setting.
