Earning Global Leadership Cords and Certificates
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 70 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 annual JWAC membership fee that covers a teacher sponsor and all of the students who are active in the club. 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.
