Middle school and high school Conferences

ALTMUN is focused on giving students meaningful exposure to international affairs and the process of diplomacy. 

We strive to arm students with practical skills through researching, writing, debating, and compromising from within and beyond our conference. 

Creating an experience which is both memorable and impactful to our delegates.

an ALTernative Model UN

ALTMUN was created by a group of adult MUN Alumni whose passion for the program never died. We formed the Board and the conference was born in 2022. ALTMUN is governed by two bodies, the Board of Volunteers and the Student Staff. 

Unlike many MUN conferences in the country, our staff are not college students, but High Schoolers. Each year’s staff is responsible for creating the content for that years conferences. We believe that when given a chance, young students can be more professional, mature and responsible than you could have ever expected. 

The goal for our high school conference is to create an authentic representation of the United Nations with a focus on current and relevant international topics. Our middle school conference is aimed at introducing Model UN to new students with a teaching style and a gradual build of information and skills.
