Education Program

Inspiring our youth to be the global citizens and international leaders of tomorrow is critical to our mission. Our Education Program engages the younger generation in the most critical global issues. A centerpiece of the Education Program is the Youth Outreach Initiative which extends Council opportunities to students at under-resourced high schools in the Bay Area.

The World Affairs Council Business Forum convenes business and thought leaders for in-person, broadcast and online conversations on topics at the nexus of commerce, technology, international policy and society. It is this nexus that will be critical to today’s and tomorrow’s companies and their employees as they strive to stay competitive and understand the geopolitical and policy issues that expand or limit market opportunities. Technology is at the heart of this intersection as it connects people around the world and continues to evolve in new ways that provide access to information and opportunity with transformative societal impact.
