The Model United Nations Institute (MUNI) is Best Delegate’s premier Model United Nations training program that takes place every summer at multiple universities across the United States. MUNI consists of a series of one-week academic summer programs that teach students about Model United Nations, and there are a variety of program types designed for different skill levels and age groups ranging from elementary school through high school as well as for teachers.
Best Delegate is now recruiting for two types of positions:
The Diplomacy Fellowship is a paid seven-week or eight-week summer fellowship for top university graduates or students with significant Model UN achievements, leadership experience, and interest in educating the next generation of student leaders. Diplomacy Fellows will serve as the instructors, trainers, and mentors for students that attend MUNI.
The Residential Counselor position is a paid eight-week summer fellowship for top university graduates or students with significant experience in residential supervision, student safety, and recreational programming. Residential Counselors will ensure that each program is safe and fun for the students, and will run recreational programming during evenings and weekends.
The fellowship term for both Diplomacy Fellows and Residential Counselors is from June 12 – August 6, 2016 (some Diplomacy Fellows may be assigned to start on June 19 instead). Staff must be available during the entire fellowship term. All staff will start in Washington DC for training and to teach and supervise the first Model UN Institute. Afterward, staff will be assigned to travel in small teams to teach and supervise at programs held in different cities throughout the United States.
All staff will receive a competitive stipend, and all housing, meals, and most travel costs will be covered throughout the fellowship period.
Applications are due January 18, 2016! The application for this program is very competitive. Learn more about the Diplomacy Fellowship and Residential Counselor positions, and view the applications here!
