Annually, the Council’s Global Young Leaders program hosts six leadership trainings for North Texas high school students participating in Junior World Affairs Council (JWAC) clubs. These trainings give JWAC members the opportunity to enhance their communication, delegation, and decision-making skills through intensive sessions and simulations led by our staff and partner organizations. Each session focuses on a different topic related to the one or more of the education program’s four pillars of global competence: diplomatic leadership, civic engagement, problem-solving and cultural intelligence.
Leadership trainings are hosted on participating school campuses throughout the region, with an average attendance of 30 – 80 students per session.
