An entirely free, virtual, and student-led Model UN experience.
Students around the world have been affected by COVID-19, and our education has shifted quickly from classroom-based to online. We can all agree that it has been hard adjusting to zoom classes and virtual exams. In light of this, we at Youth International Summit MUN have decided to take advantage of the situation; since students around the globe are already attending virtual school, international events that would have been next-to-impossible in person (like a conference) can now be done easily online. And with that, welcome to YISMUN, a virtual MUN event where you can work and interact with delegates from around the globe!
Introducing YISMUN Campus Ambassadors!
We are so excited to offer a NEW opportunity to get involved with the Youth International Summit and our extensive global network! Campus Ambassadors are the perfect position for delegates or journalists who are ready to get more involved and gain experience working within a global organization. Campus Ambassador is also great option for those who are passionate about Model UN, but are currently too busy with their studies or work to commit full-time to chairing or joining the Secretariat. We are seeking members from AROUND THE WORLD to join our Campus Ambassador team and be the face of YISMUN in their communities. Registrations can be found at the link below-- so, what are you waiting for?
United Nations Recognition
YISMUN is honored to announce that we have been officially in contact with and recognized by the United Nations! We appreciate your support, and we hope to continue hosting many future conferences for passionate global students like you all.
Meet the Team
The Executive Board consists of our highly experienced and motivated chairs, co-chairs, and supervisors for each of our 10 committees. They work on maintaining smooth debates, moderating delegate speeches, moderated caucuses, and judge each delegate based on their performance in order to nominate them for an award presented at the conclusion of the conference. Our committees currently consist of the United Nations High Commissions for Refugees (UNHCR), UN Regional Committee: Community of Latin American and Carribean States (CELAC), United Nations office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), United Nations Women (UNW), Crisis Committee: United Nations Security Council (UNSC), UN Council for Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Issues (SOCHUM), and United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). Each consists of two co-chairs and a maximum of 30 delegates.
Secretariat is responsible for all the behind-the-scenes work that is required for hosting a virtual Model UN like this one. Our Secretary General and Under Secretary Generals oversee all activity ensuring it is of the highest quality. Our Delegate Affairs Team and IT Affairs Team work to ensure a smooth and successful conference while our Public Relations team and Media Design team handle outreach, social media, and collaborations with other MUNs. Our Treasury Secretary handles all financial dealings happening with the non-profits we donate to and finally our journalists and editors that are part of the International Press (IP) team act as unbiased journalists, reporting on the proceedings of each conference.
It was so great seeing all of you debate and grow as delegates! Y'all were awesome.
