Academy Model United Nations (AMUN) is a two-day Model UN conference hosted by the Bergen County Academies in Hackensack, New Jersey. This will be the fifteenth year that we welcome high school students and teachers from all over the nation to participate in this exciting and educational Model UN experience. Our conference provides students with a taste of organized debate, allowing them to develop skills in diplomacy and cooperation while acquiring knowledge about international relations. This year, we invite you to experience what AMUN XVI has to offer!
In the past, our dedicated staff has excelled in offering lively debate in a productive atmosphere; delegates will learn more about significant international affairs and different nations. Delegates will eventually learn more about themselves and their own abilities, and meet others whose perspectives may be different from their own. This is what we strive for: to open up the eyes of young people to ideas and solutions previously unconsidered.
We pride ourselves in the ability to cater to all skill levels. Novices and experienced delegates alike will have no trouble finding committees here to fit their abilities and interests. To ensure that everyone feels a sense of productivity and pride throughout the conference, we limit our General Assembly committees to a small and manageable number. This regulation of committee size lets newer delegates clearly speak their positions, whereas a larger conference might be intimidating and inefficient.
The Academy Model United Nations Conference XVI will be memorable for its ingenuity and productivity. It will surely be difficult to find this excitement level at other high-school conferences; come join us!
