Yale Model United Nations

The Yale Model United Nations (YMUN) is a four-day international relations simulation for high school students held annually on Yale University’s campus in New Haven, USA. Students from all over the world participate to discuss global issues related to the UN and drive possible solutions on their own. Participants are given roles of UN representatives, international bodies, and national cabinets, and engage in wide-ranging political, social, and economic topics that range from economic development to human rights.

Yale Model United Nations is one of the most authoritative Model UN events worldwide. Students will be able to develop an ability to deal with debate and widen their sight by cooperating with students from different cultures.

Learn Today 

With our comprehensive chair recruitment and preparation procedure, we strive to create a fun, educational, dynamic committee experience for all delegates regardless of skill level. Our chairs are Yale students who are dedicated and passionate educators ready to be proactive with delegates. YMUN is also proud to provide both in-conference training and online pre-conference training.

Lead Tomorrow

Due to our commitment to learning, we hope delegates leave our conference with a greater awareness of global issues, equipped with the tools and motivation to make a difference. Through our keynote speaker, partnership with a non-profit organization, and new out-of-committee learning initiatives, we strive to integrate impact, responsibility, and action into our events.

Engage with Yale

YMUN is hosted on Yale’s beautiful campus and allows delegates and advisors to experience what our university has to offer.
Through Yale Day, the Global Exchange Program and our Showcase, delegates will meet Yale students and professors to not only learn about international relations, but also to gain insight into college life and beyond.
