Every year, VMUN assembles a highly driven staff team comprised solely of capable high-school students. VMUN 2022 took the conference to an unprecedented level, bringing almost 1000 attendees together in person while balancing pandemic safety with substantive quality. Now, we need a talented and passionate team of high school students to create the best iteration of our conference yet. VMUN has grown from humble beginnings to the largest high school student-run conference globally — one that marks the highlight of many students’ years. As a member of the VMUN 2023 Staff team, you will:
Create something amazing. Almost 1000 participants attended VMUN 2022 — the largest in-person MUN conference in a pandemic year — and we expect even more interest this year. It’s truly something special for someone to say that they helped run an iteration of VMUN.
Make a tangible difference. Like most MUN conferences, VMUN is organized, run, and staffed by volunteers alone. However, VMUN is rather special because, at VMUN, each and every one of these volunteers is a high school student. As a staff member at VMUN, your ideas, vision, and work are highly valued and you can personally have an impact on the conference’s success.
Join a team of passionate, like-minded students VMUN is serious about Model UN. We’re renowned for our broad array of committee experiences and the high quality of debate which is upheld, and we continue to meet and exceed those expectations. Moreover, VMUN is committed to delegate diversity, which is why VMUN runs an extensive financial aid program, and why we place such emphasis on training and educating delegates before and during the conference. VMUN is a special endeavour to be a part of.
