Team Model UN Training Session
MEET THE DIRECTOR
My name is Frank Pobutkiewicz and I’m the founder and Director of the All-American Model UN Programs. Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of students around the United States, teaching them my techniques and methods to success in Model United Nations.
During that span, the All-American Delegations have won team awards around the country and throughout the United States. I’m more proud of the success our students have once they return to their schools, where many of them teach the same lessons I provided them with.
I believe in a research-driven, solutions-based approached to Model UN. So by taking my courses, you’ll not only learn MUN tips, you’ll learn how the UN is structured, the history of international politics in the 20th and 21st centuries, theories of international relations, economics, and other related subject material.
I hope to work with you soon!

Sixteen Years of Training Material in the Making
Get your hands on all of our training material, developed over the past 15+ years. Practiced and proven material that produces results.
Not only has our training produced seven years of winning Best Delegation awards and 95% individual award rate on All-American travel teams, but we’ve also helped high schools around the US win.
First, our training was exclusive to only students accepted and enrolled in All-American Model United Nations programs. Since 2011, our teams have won delegation awards at every conference that we’ve attended, and our students place a staggering 95% of the time. For three consecutive years, from 2016-2018, the All-American Model UN team won Best Small Delegation at Georgetown’s North American Invitational Model UN (NAIMUN) conference in Washington, D.C.
In 2016, we started training high school teams around the country. With our research and training techniques, we’ve helped school teams win delegation awards at some of the top conferences in the country, including YMUN, BosMUN, and WAMUNC.
Now, we’re bringing our training online to individual students across the country!
Our philosophy revolves around four pillars:
- Research and Preparation– All-American Model UN places a premium on research and pre-conference preparation. Students will be taught how to research complex international issues, analyze past actions taken, and develop new, novel approaches for solving some of the world’s biggest challenges.
- Pattern Recognition- Model UN conferences, whether one day or five days, follow the same pattern or cycle. The All Access training program will divulge the “secret” pattern behind Model UN conferences and teach students how to best develop a strategy to succeed.
- Emotional Intelligence- Model UN teaches grit, determination, leadership, and team building. To better understand these skills, All-American Model UN believes in teaching emotional intelligence to its students.
- Confidence- We believe that practice builds confidence. Rather than constantly run mock simulations, we break Model UN down into smaller, more digestible segments. We approach Model UN education like baseball or basketball practice–you don’t constantly scrimmage during every practice, but instead, you work on individual drills to apply to game situations.
