Helping high school students take their first step on the path to becoming global citizens
What is the Youth Diplomats Program?
Each year, the World Trade Center Institute’s (WTCI) eight-month Youth Diplomats Program helps 25 students take their first steps towards becoming global citizens. One Saturday a month they meet to explore topics in global affairs and diplomacy. Along the way they build their leadership and cross-cultural communication skills through interactions with professionals across WTCI’s extensive business network and international visitors from across the world. Through a series of workshops, volunteer opportunities, and professional meetings, they will become better prepared for the challenges and opportunities in the global marketplace.
The Youth Diplomats Program is part of the Albrecht Fellowships, a series of programs designed to help students become the next generation of global leaders. Through these programs students discover global opportunities that they never knew existed as they prepare to make their mark on the world.
