Train Your Club

Take our training back to your school to train other members. We’ll give you a ton of resources for you to make your team competitive!

DIPLOMACY ACADEMY ALUMNI ATTEND

“The mentors’ ability to foster close connections within the students is something that I’ve never had with anyone else, and I can say that EVERYONE else has since become a great friend.”

Kaitlyn Saldanha

“Two things are true about the All-American Diplomacy Academy. First, you will become better. And second, you will get better at a lot of different things.”

Noah Riley

“The Diplomacy Academy is what got me hooked on Model UN. It’s been an important part of my life ever since, and now I’m on the NAIMUN Secretariat!'”

Jaebok Lee

“It’s obvious All-American knows what they’re doing. They break down Model UN into small component and hone in to make sure everyone knows as much as possible. I improved 10x after the Diplomacy Academy.”

Join the Waitlist

How the Waitlist Works

Students and parents may add their name to the All-American Model UN Academy waitlist to be notified when registration officially opens. Because of the COVID19 pandemic, we will only be operating the All-Amerian Model UN Academy in Boston if all staff and students are vaccinated. Once we are confident this requirement can be met, we will contact everyone on the waitlist. Students are highly recommended to apply and be accepted to All-American Model UN before the registration period opens. Students can apply anytime through our online application. Once the registration period officially opens, seats will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
