Volunteer - Take Your Involvement to a New Level
Apply for a position on the volunteer staff of National Model United Nations (NMUN)! Descriptions of Volunteer Opportunities and Application Forms are listed to the right.
We need experienced former delegates to help organize and run our conferences. Volunteers serve as Committee Directors, Assistant Directors, or in Conference Services. Put your research and organizational skills to use by helping develop preparation materials and serving as conference staff. The Chair/Rapporteur positions at the New York conference provide valuable skills and insights that will help make you a good candidate for our volunteer positions.
NMUN is staffed by more than 100 volunteers who work as part of a diverse, international team. We seek enthusiastic NMUN alumni willing to help organize future NMUN conferences. Applications from both undergraduates and those with degrees are encouraged. Many staff members are current graduate students. Prior NMUN staff experience is preferred or required for programs outside New York where less training is offered.
- 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.
- Become part of an international volunteer staff committed to the ideals of the United Nations and form lifelong friendships.
