Virtual Model United Nations Conferences (VMUNC)

Welcome to the Best Delegate Virtual Model United Nations Conferences (VMUNC)

VMUNC is a series of one-day virtual Model UN conferences throughout the school year that help students learn and practice their public speaking, debate, negotiation, and leadership skills. Students will represent different countries or world leaders and will be challenged to work with others to solve real world issues.
We invite Faculty Advisors, Students, and Parents to read below to learn more about the different VMUNC levels. There are MUN conferences for students ranging from grades 5-12, and MUN conferences that cater to different experience levels. 

Save the Dates for 2021-2022!

All conferences take place from 12-6pm Eastern time. This enables delegates from throughout the USA and Canada time zones to participate together.

What will Model UN look like in 2021-2022?

Global citizens will need to succeed in both virtual and in-person interactions in the future, so the best preparation is to build public speaking, debating, negotiation, and teamwork skills in both formats today. 

At Best Delegate, we believe the future of Model United Nations will comprise a mix of virtual MUN conferences and in-person MUN conferences. The combination of both formats will help students build the confidence and community they need to succeed. 

We recommend MUN clubs build a schedule with a mix of both types of conferences, or to add more virtual MUN conferences to their schedule to create accessible opportunities for their students. 

Our conferences are 100% virtual and low-cost so that MUN clubs can easily add it into next year's conference schedule. Use our conferences to help new students learn Model UN and help experienced students hone their Model UN skills. And for schools located in areas where attending in-person Model UN conferences is not feasible, then our virtual conferences provide a high quality and accessible Model UN experience.
