The Virtual Kentucky United Nations Assembly (KUNA) is a 2-day, virtual, experiential-learning conference in which students participate directly in simulated international diplomacy. KUNA offers students the opportunity to experience the richness of cultures from around the world, develop empathy, and hone their critical thinking skills while engaging with a wide variety of perspectives and global issues.

KUNA volunteers work to support Kentucky YMCA Staff (Y-Staff) in setting up, running, and breaking down the conference. Volunteers are welcome to join us for as little or as much time as they are able to commit, ranging from a few hours to a full conference.

KUNA 2021 will be held virtually.
