These free programs allow me to use others' experiences in their career and time abroad to develop my future goals and desires.

Coppell HS

The exposure to world leaders of this stature is invaluable to any student. However, the urban students rarely have such wonderful experiences and it truly broadens their view of the world.

Skyline HS, Dallas ISD

Thank you for allowing me to have the opportunity to learn about not only our problems in the global community but also current steps that are being taken to combat them. What an inspiring event! I cannot thank you enough!

Ursuline Academy

We as a generation need to understand that we are becoming global citizens. The gathering of knowledge of worlds beyond our national border is vital; the free programs provided by WAC give firsthand experience on learning about our world.

Garland HS

We need international education to differentiate the things we hear on TV -- it is refreshing to hear/see someone who has been there.

Highland Park HS

International education is critical for the younger generation because they are the future leaders of the community and world. Events like this enable them to better understand the society they will one day very soon serve.

Junior World Affairs Councils

For more than a decade our Junior World Affairs Councils (JWACs) have been a global triumph on local campuses. Our JWAC program has been linking students to the world since 2004. With more than 60 chapters in North Texas, JWAC is a great way for high school students to learn about international issues and become more globally aware. JWAC chapters can be started at any high school with students in grades 9-12 with the support of one of the school’s teachers as a sponsor.

The Council will help you create a Junior World Affairs Council for your campus. It's a simple process with a $50 JWAC membership fee. Your steps: (1) organize a group of internationally interested students and (2) get in touch with us. You and your students will travel beyond classroom walls and pages in textbooks to real-time, firsthand sessions with diplomats, dignitaries, leaders, authors and others who understand global issues and opportunities in business and education.

Plus, there are great membership rewards for educators who are Council members at the JWAC level. It’s an extracurricular activity that pays off in knowledge and, now and then, scholarships, grants and study tours.

HOW TO START A JWAC CHAPTER

  1. Recruit JWAC members and a teacher sponsor
  2. Elect JWAC leadership positions (President and Vice President)
  3. Download and fill out the JWAC Starter Kit and email completed document to Amy Miller
