How do I get started?
- For students, identify a teacher or sponsor on your campus who can help prepare you for the March Conference, as well as other students at your school who are interested in participating. You can familiarize yourself with the committees that will be offered using the various resources made available by the United Nations. Background guides for each of these committees will be released this fall. If you would like to learn more, the Council will be hosting several in-person and online lead-up sessions to help prepare students for the conference. These sessions are perfect for students interested in learning more about Model UN, the United Nations, and what it takes to succeed on Conference Day.
- For educators, identify students who have an interest in global affairs, public speaking, or looking for enriching programming to prepare them for university studies. Contact the education team for resources to disseminate to students.
- For parents, share GHMUN with globally minded high schoolers in your orbit! Help students take the first step by reaching out to educators on your student’s campus about this opportunity.
