Registration is now open!

The 2023 Summer Global Leadership Seminar is a weeklong program bringing together a group of diverse and highly-motivated regional high school students for an intensive summer learning experience with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. Through this program, students take a deep dive into a topic of international significance, exploring this topic through a diverse array of expert-led workshops, discussion, and debate.  This weeklong program will explore different approaches to the topic at hand, teach student key skills to understand core  concepts, and delve into global relations and our connected world.  While the program will have an international focus, learned concepts will be directly applicable to community development and civic responsibility on a local and personal level.  

Registered students will receive access to a curated pre-program resource guide that includes all the resources and materials needed for participation in the program.
