Model UN is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and its other multilateral bodies where students perform an ambassador role while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, global health, and more.
Through public speaking, critical thinking, and in-depth research, the Model UN experience allows students to cultivate skills and enrich their global affairs knowledge. UNA-USA is dedicated to empowering young Americans with tools and experiences that prepare them to be the next generation of global leaders. Our local chapters encourage students in their communities to participate in Model UN programming. Today, UNA-USA, in partnership with local chapters, operates Model UN Conferences in Boston, Washington, D.C., Houston, Tampa, New York City and other communities. Contact your local UNA-USA Chapter to determine their level of involvement in Model UN.
Our virtual Week of Action, sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive, equips you, our UNA-USA members, with the necessary tools and perspectives to be an effective advocate for the United Nations.
You’ll have opportunities to connect and network with fellow members from across the country and develop your own personal journey in the UNA-USA movement through member-oriented sessions.
