Online Model UN Programs
Digitally designed Model United Nations virtual conferences, newsletters, and courses
Digital First Design
Rather than try to replicate in-person experiences, All-American Model UN virtual programs and courses are designed from a digital-first perspective. There’s more to technology than Zoom!
Even though technology allows us to have hundreds of students in a session, we purposefully choose to work with small groups of students to guarantee growth.
All-American Model UN has produced digital teaching programs to fit all experience levels and different learning styles. Students can choose from self-paced courses, weekly club meetings, or week-long academies.
All-American Model UN will continue to put our community first. We hope that all of our students develop long-lasting relationships with each other and with our mentors.
Weekly Model UN Hangouts
Dates: Tuesdays at 4:00PM ET
Join us online every week to talk about what’s going on in the world of Model UN and ask any questions that you have to the All-American Model UN Director. In the weekly hangout, we’ll be talking about how to practice for Model UN conferences, how to train your club, and what COVID-19 means for Model UN next year. To know what the weekly topics are beforehand, sign up for the Gavel Drop newsletter (or see below).
