Alpha Model United Nations

Connecting the US and China through Model UN

Alpha Model United Nations (AMUN) is the world's first Model UN conference exclusively designed for Chinese and American high school delegations. Founded in the wake of COVID-19, we believe it‘s more important now than ever to build bridges not walls between students from our two countries.


In partnership with the world's oldest and most prestigious Model UN conferences, AMUN hosts committees chaired by experienced American and Chinese college students. With regular sessions and innovative online procedures, AMUN allows delegates from both countries to debate and find solutions to the world's most pressing issues without leaving their homes.

American Delegates

Selected from schools across the United States

Our Alpha Exchange team coordinates China exchange and travel programs programs for almost 50 schools across the United States. These schools all have competitive MUN teams and have always asked us for opportunities to connect with Chinese MUN teams. They asked, we listened, and now their students are exchanging with China through Model UN without leaving their homes.

Chinese Delegates

Selected from the top MUN teams in China

Our founders were instrumental in introducing Model United Nations into Chinese high schools over 10 years ago and have deep connections with MUN clubs at well over 100 of the top schools in China. These clubs compete in many local, regional, national and even international conferences each year, but Alpha MUN is their first time competing with an equal number of American peers in the same committees.

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE PROCEDURES

Leveraging the best of American and Chinese technology

In the spirit of bridging the US and China through Model UN, the virtual conference experience at Alpha MUN is enabled by both American and Chinese technology. Committees and conference events are hosted on Zoom, with adapted procedures for moderated debate, unmoderated caucuses and voting. Outside committee, delegates use WeChat Work to communicate and collaborate on working papers and draft resolutions.
