The 12th Annual Crisis Academy

All-American Model UN has hosted the Crisis Academy for over ten years, equipping hundreds of students with the best Model UN crisis committee learning on the planet.

About Us

Mentors with over 50 years of combined Model UN experience

All-American Model UN has been working with high school students since 2011. It all started with the first team of 12 students that All-American Model UN coached and traveled with to Asia’s largest Model UN conference in Beijing, China.

Through our Summer Academies, we bring our award-winning curriculum and training to student leaders looking to bring their Model UN skills to the next level.

The cornerstone of our approach lies with individual attention. Each day, we work with every student one-on-one to ensure maximum results.

Our Approach

The All-American Model UN Difference

Individual Attention & Feedback

Every student who attends an All-American Model UN Academy receives one-on-one feedback and coaching every day. All-American Model UN has the smallest student-to-staff ratio for Model UN summer programs. Students complete our Academies equipped with tools, tactics, and strategies that are guaranteed to improve performance.

Leadership Development

Most of our students either are in student leadership positions or assume leadership roles within a year of completing All-American Model UN Academies. Our programs stress four key components of leadership: emotional intelligence, pattern recognition, preparation, and advocacy.

Proven Track Record

All-American Model UN has been coaching students since 2011. Our teams have won Best Delegation in 98% of the conferences we have participated in, with 90% of our students winning individual accolades. We have represented the US at conferences in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Our US travel team is considered one of the country’s best teams. We practice what we teach.

I had never competed at high-level Model UN conferences and had little experience with crisis committees. With the coaching from All-American Model UN, I started attending 1000+ person conferences and winning awards consistently.
