Step into the role of a diplomat to address current global issues during the United Nations Association of Greater Boston's Institute in Global Leadership Model UN programs!
Middle and high school students are invited to join the United Nations Association of Greater Boston’s Spring and Summer Institute in Global Leadership!
Join us for a 3-day program in the spring or a 5-day program in the summer. Each institute gives students from around the world the opportunity to learn about global issues, participate in public speaking and negotiation activities, meet guest speakers, and step into the role of a diplomat during Model UN simulations.
What is Model UN?
In Model UN, participants learn about a global issue and are assigned to a specific country. In a simulation that mirrors a UN committee session, students (or delegates, as we refer to them!) give speeches, engage in formal debate, collaborate and negotiate ideas, draft solutions (referred to as “resolutions”), and vote.
