We need 100+ experienced former delegates and others with Model UN experience to help organize and run our conferences.

  • Individuals with NMUN experience (preferred) and applicants with extraordinary substantive or logistical knowledge from other MUNs.

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.
