WorldChicago Youth Diplomats is an 8-month experiential learning program that will explore global issues, build leadership and cross-cultural communication skills, and introduce students to college and career options in international affairs, development and diplomacy. Participants will also serve as peer ambassadors to WorldChicago’s international youth exchange students from Southern Asia, the Middle East, Cuba, and the UK.
Youth Diplomats will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month from January to August 2018. WorldChicago will select 11-15 students representing the city and surrounding suburbs to create a vibrant, diverse corps of young global citizens. Youth Diplomats will participate at a Global Youth Summit on International Education, attend monthly sessions on global diplomacy, and are eligible to apply for an experiential-learning visit to Washington D.C. There is no fee to participate in Youth Diplomats; participants will be selected through a merit-based application and interview process.
WorldChicago would love to see applicants from Walter Payton College Prep!
