“I’m so thankful that I found out about All-American Model UN. Even though I only could participate in one program before I graduated, I wish I could have done more. Frank really cares about all of his students and will do anything to help us get better. I met so many people from around the world and have many new friends now!”
“My last Model UN conference was with All-American and I couldn’t have wished for a better memory. I learned so much about history, and also won Best Delegate– my last high school gavel!”
“All-American MUN gives me a way to explore new countries without feeling like a typical tourist. Not only did I win an award in my first crisis committee, Frank taught me to improve my speaking, leadership, and collaboration skills.”
