High School Program

 

The Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall High School Program offers high school students the opportunity to attend events with a wide range of international leaders, political figures, and experts in the fields of business, technology, and health. We invite students and teachers to attend our events free of cost and to interview our speakers at a private pre-event student briefing, and host events and forums specifically for students.

By creating a space for students to sit across from leaders to not only learn, but to engage in an exchange of ideas, our High School Program aims to provide students a more global outlook on current affairs while empowering them to set high goals in their ongoing studies and career aspirations.

COVID-19 Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to engage students virtually — through our public livestream programs, as well as special programs for high school students and their teachers.
