COVID19 UPDATE

Due to the on-going coronavirus crisis, All-American Model UN has decided to suspend all in-person activities until 2021 to ensure the safety of all of our community members and mentors. We’ve transitioned to providing a suite of digital Model UN training, conferences, and academies. All students who registered for programs in 2020 will receive 100% full refunds.

Thank you for your confidence and support.

Academy Overview

i

Traditional Committees

Learn our strategy and approach to traditional Model UN committees like the General Assembly and Economic and Social Council. We’ll teach out nine-part approach to large committees, review best tactics for resolution writing, and teach the most widely accepted procedure.

Crisis Committees

As the week progresses, we’ll teach the best tactics for excelling in crisis committees, including front-of-the-room interactions and directives, and back-of-the-room crisis notes and private actions.

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!

Academic Project

Throughout the week, students will work on an independent academic project, giving them the opportunity to dive into a subject matter of their choosing. By the end of the week, students will complete a paper abstract and give a 10-minute presentation on their research.

MODEL UN TRAINING

Our Model UN training focuses on developing skills in each student. It’s why we cap the maximum number of students who attend the Academy each year at 20 students so that every student can receive individual feedback.  The mornings will include skill workshops to be applied to the simulations later in the day.

Model UN Procedure

Students must pass a procedure exam to complete the academy.

Unmoderated Caucuses

Learn and practice the best ways to show bloc leadership.

k

Draft Resolutions and Amendments

Students will learn the most effective way to organize draft resolutions and how to maximize the amendment process.

Impromptu Speeches

The Academy gives students the chance to excel at public speaking– removing filler sounds, impromptu speaking, and structuring arguments

ACADEMIC PROJECT

One of the most powerful aspects of doing Model UN for a number a year is the ability to specialize in a particular field of interest. At the Academy, students will choose a subject of their choice– Gender Rights in South America, the Interwar Period, the Rise of Nationalism in the 21t Century– and spend the week diving into research.

Academic Research

Students will be taught how to do academic research at a collegiate level.

i

2,000 Word Abstract

By the end of the week, each student will complete a 2,000-word abstract summarizing their research and outlining a thesis.
