We are proud to have hosted the 18th annual session of Academy Model United Nations on January 26 and 27, 2017 at the Bergen County Academies in Hackensack, New Jersey. Our conference provided students with a taste of organized debate, allowing them to develop skills in diplomacy and cooperation while acquiring knowledge about international relations. We hope that delegates found our conference both substantive and exciting, especially if their .
Our dedicated staff excelled in offering lively debate in a productive atmosphere. Delegates learned to view the world from the perspectives of different nations - nations whose beliefs may contradict their own. This is what we have striven for ever since our founding: to open up the eyes of young people to ideas and solutions previously unconsidered.
We offered committees to suit the needs of delegates of all skill levels. Novices and experienced delegates alike found committees here to fit their abilities and interests, with many first-time delegates grew greatly while here, and the challenge of the Ad-Hoc testing the most experienced delegates. As, we are the only multi-day high school organized conference in the NYC metro area, delegates spent more hours in committee debating than other conferences of the same type, preparing them for weekend long collegiate-level competitions, at a fraction of the cost.
