Education

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia's Educational Focus 

We Create Global Citizens. Reaching more than 2,100 students from over 75 public, private, parochial and charter schools throughout the Greater Philadelphia region each year, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia's educational legacy has helped to build a growing corps of leaders possessing the critical knowledge, skills and sensibilities necessary to assume the responsibilities of global citizenship. Through our diverse programming for middle and high school students, including the International Student Summit, Global Economic Forum,  and Jr. Model United Nations Program, we are dedicated to preparing young people to contribute to and succeed in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.
