In-Person Summer Institute in Global Leadership: Advanced Public Speaking

The United Nations Association of Greater Boston’s Summer Institute in Global Leadership is a week-long Model UN program for students from all over the world to work together and address global issues.

Advanced Institutes bring together older students who are passionate about global issues and are in, or aspire to be in, leadership roles that demand advance communication skills.

This week, students will work together to develop public speaking skills through the format of Model UN simulations. There will be a particular focus on presentation tips and tricks and extemporaneous speaking. Join us for a fun and fast paced week!

Note: This week is only open to students entering grades 9 -12. Experience with the traditional Model UN format is strongly encouraged.

What is Model UN?
In Model UN, participants learn about a global issue and are assigned to represent a specific country. In a simulation that mirrors a UN committee session, students (or delegates, as we refer to them!) give speeches, engage in formal debate, collaborate and negotiate ideas, draft solutions (referred to in Model UN as “resolutions”), and vote. Using parliamentary procedure to structure debate (just like the real UN!), students have the opportunity to build skills for life and leadership while learning about a complex global issue.
