New York is the host city of 2 (two) MMUN conferences. In 2018, Upper Elementary and Middle School students will have committee representation at both February and March Conferences.
The New York Marriott Marquis Hotel is the official venue for the first 3 days of the MMUN New York City Conference, and where participants will be lodged. On the fourth and last day of the conference, delegates will gather at the United Nations General Assembly at 46th Street and 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10017 for the Voting & Closing Ceremony.
Schools new to MMUN
Schools participating for the first time can only register after attending a MMUN Teacher Workshop. The MMUN Teacher Workshop is a two-day course that will enable teachers to prepare students to attend the MMUN Conferences as delegates. If you have already registered for one of the upcoming MMUN Teacher Workshops, you must contact email@example.com to request that spots are reserved for your delegation and provide the number of students in your group. Upon receipt of your email request, we will reserve spots for your students until the date immediate after completion of your training.
The Montessori Model UN Program and its conferences are designed for Upper Elementary and Middle School students ages 9-15.
All MMUN coordinators, whether experienced or new, are required to watch the MMUN4UN Webinar prior to registering a school group to attend any of the MMUN Conferences. The MMUN4UN Webinar video contains new procedures and policies, and it was created to ensure coordinators are given additional and essential guidelines to properly prepare student delegates for all MMUN Conferences.
Please check back on this page by August 1st as further information on conference fees will be posted then.
