TESTIMONIALS

“The trip to Budapest is not only a chance to compete at a wonderfully run MUN conference, but a chance to experience a beautiful city and with history and views like you would not believe. Fun, Debate, Food, and Friends are only some of the things that make this trip amazing!”

Aditya Iyengar, All-American 2016

Wootton High School, NYU 2021

“Going to Budapest for YMGE was one of the greatest experiences of my life! Not only did the conference exceed my high expectations as amazing and fun but the city was also wonderful. You can’t miss a Frank Pobutkiewicz tour complete with Christmas markets and chimney cakes!”

Tengi Shiga, All-American 2016

Hononegah Community High School, Boston University 2021

“Going to Budapest with All-American was one of the best decisions I made in High School. The competition was tough, but having Frank as a coach really helped me navigate my way through the many obstacles I faced in committee. Coming home with a gavel was great, but that feeling that comes with world travels made the the experience one I will never forget.”

Roshan Shelley, All-American 2016

JP Stevens, Rutgers University 2021
