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.

“Being an All-American has changed my life. I have learned so much, not only about MUN, but also about the world, history, politics, and even about people. If you want that life changing experience, apply for this program– I’ve been on three trips and have never been disappointed.”
“Working with Frank, the All-American Director, and my All-American teammates was the highlight of my high school experience. While I learned a TON about how to win Model UN awards, more importantly, I was able to immerse myself in new cultures and learn about the world.”
“Dropped into a group of fellow high school Model UN scholars, I got to know the people who I now consider some of my closest friends over the hours of traveling, touring, and having fun. Upon arriving in Beijing, we began our whirlwind tour of the city and surrounding area, and at least for me, the culture and people were far more interesting and exciting than the sites themselves. Don’t be mistaken, I have seen few things as beautiful or intricate as the art that covers many Chinese historical sites, and the Great Wall is perhaps the most magnificent structure I have had the opportunity to see.”
