“ As a student confined to a desk and some notebook paper, the World Affairs Council has allowed me to branch out and immerse myself in eye-opening topics.”
– Student, Verdugo Hills High School
The Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall High School Program offers high school students from public, charter, and magnet schools the opportunity to attend free events with a wide range of international leaders, political figures, and experts in business, science, and government.
Student programming ranges from students-only lunches and forums to private student briefings for high-profile speakers at regular LAWACTH events. We partner with more than 50 high schools in the Los Angeles metropolitan area and engage several hundred students annually.
Our High School Program aims to provide students with a space to learn new perspectives on current affairs, ask questions of top speakers and panelists, and feel empowered to set high goals in their ongoing studies and career aspirations.
To learn more about our High School Program and how you can participate, please contact our Community Manager, Rachel Kenderdine, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (213) 328-3181.
Generous donations by a number of our members and outside grants allow us to provide program opportunities at no cost to public, charter, and magnet schools. We extend a special thank you to our High School Program sponsors:
