Join Our Dynamic Volunteer Team

Apply to be a part of our diverse, international team that makes up the volunteer staff of National Model United Nations (NMUN). We need 100+ experienced former delegates and others with Model UN experience to help organize and run our conferences. Put your research and organizational skills to use, help develop preparation materials, and serve as conference staff. Volunteers perform various duties as Committee Directors, Assistant Directors, or as Conference Services staff. Application forms are towards the bottom of this page.

Who Volunteers
  • Undergraduate students, graduate students, and people with degrees. Applications are welcome from all fields of study.
  • Individuals with NMUN experience (preferred) and applicants with extraordinary substantive or logistical knowledge from other MUNs.
  • Delegates and those who have served in the NY Chair/Rapporteur positions. These positions provide valuable skills and insights that help make good candidates for our volunteer positions.
  • Anyone who is interested in sharing the NMUN experience with others. There are no particular references required, no special invitations to apply, and no need to have mentioned interest to current staff members.
Why Volunteer
  • Develop skills in facilitation of debate, conflict resolution, and customer service while learning alongside delegates about emerging global issues.
  • Build your résumé. We offer publishing credit for the written background materials and professional experience organizing and staffing the world’s largest university-level simulation of the United Nations.
