Virtual MUN Institute Private Camps & Group Enrollment
A Summer of Fun, Friends, and Feedback!
In one week, students will step into the shoes of a world leader and enjoy 15 hours of live programs facilitated by our Model UN Mentors. Classes include a mix of public speaking practice with feedback, team-based skill-building activities, and fun icebreakers, trivia, and games so students get to know each other.
Students get ready for a different final Model United Nations simulation that takes place at the end of each week! In the Model UN simulation, students will represent different countries and debate and work together to solve a real world issue. Parents are welcome to watch the final simulation! Students earn a Certificate of Completion at the end of the week.
By the end of the program, students gain an understanding of how to debate world issues from different country perspectives. More importantly, students get to build the confidence to speak and lead, connect deeper with their new friends, and gain self-awareness from feedback.
Debate Different World Issues
New to this Summer are different themes and topics for each program! Students will receive a different country assignment and be debating a different world issue with like-minded peers during each program. Build a fun and engaging summer by selecting the topic(s) that you find most interesting for your students at each level.

IDEA Public Schools
Since 2014 over 500 students and teachers from IDEA Public Schools have attended the MUN Institute (both in person and virtually) and they have brought back the skills they learned and MUN resources to create a MUN league across IDEA Public Schools in Texas. The program has helped students to improve their leadership, debate and public speaking skills, global awareness, and confidence to increase their college readiness. Learn more from IDEA administrators and students from our latest Impact Webinar!
“MUNI has prepared me for college by giving me a voice. Before MUNI I was afraid to voice my opinion and speak out, now I do just that. Additionally, MUNI has taught me how to improve my research and public speaking skills. As a whole, these are skills that will definitely be useful for me to succeed in not just college, but my future career and life.”
- Dania, IDEA Student
“Model UN has such an immensely positive impact on our student body, and we’re so excited to continue it. Through it all, the students had smiles on their faces and excitement, enthusiasm, and passion in their demeanor. We’re working on spreading it to even more schools in the district!”
- Karthik, IDEA MUN Teacher
“Model UN really is such a game changer. It helps students step outside the box and experience new things. I have been really lucky to be partnering with Best Delegate since 2014 to bring Model UN to IDEA. You can just see the impacts of Model UN on skills like public speaking, advocacy, and empathizing.”
- Sarah Wilson, Managing Director of IDEA Alumni Affairs
United Arab Emirates Ministry of Education
In 2018 and 2019, Best Delegate partnered with the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Education for the Diplomatic Ambassadors Program. The partnership brought over 100 aspiring young Emirati diplomats from high schools across the country to attend our Model UN Institute. The student leaders learned about global sustainability, development, human rights, and security. The partnership facilitated life-changing takeaways for each participant, including the ability to represent their culture to the world and gain confidence learning about new perspectives.
"Participating at the MUN Institute programme changed my world. Now I look at other people's perspectives, not only my own, when addressing issues. I will launch MUN club at my school to transfer knowledge to my friends back home."
- Noor, Student from the UAE
"This is one of the most inspiring, informative and engaging training courses. It has fully accomplished its goal of turning me from a teacher with very little knowledge about MUN to a confident MUN teacher."
- Rania, Educator from the UAE
"The most important thing about a diplomat is to learn about foreign policies of different countries and think critically about issues from multiple perspectives different than their own. The MUN Institute trains them to do exactly that through different simulations."
- Ahlam Al Ahmed, Skills Development Specialist
Tuition & Payment Process
Program tuition covers the cost of staffing the live training camps for 15 hours, the extensive Model UN learning resources that will be provided throughout the program, and the Certificate of Completion. Please note that the Crisis tuition is priced higher as it requires additional staff to deliver an exciting, real-time crisis simulation.
Groups will be given two options after registration:
- Group Payment: An invoice will be sent to the group to pay by credit card, wire transfer, or check on behalf of all students in the group. Groups must submit student names at least two weeks before the program starts to ensure all students receive their class links and onboarding materials.
- Every parent can pay by credit card individually. The parents will each receive the discount code to use during registration, and will be submitting student names as part of the registration process. This must be done at least two weeks before the program starts to ensure all students receive their class links and onboarding materials.
