International Law & Foreign Policy Program
We work to develop youth leaders for the global stage through dynamic global education and leadership development programs.
During a three-week annual summer institute held at the Council on Foreign Relations, young people of diverse backgrounds
interact with leading experts on international law, global security, trade and development, and related issues.
Participants engage in Global Kids-led workshops that build leadership, communication, and critical thinking skills. They use these skills to stimulate public dialogue and action concerning critical international policy issues.
The program takes advantage of New York City as a global crossroads. Students learn from
specialists with expertise on various issues and regions, and interact with leaders from United Nations offices and global NGOs that are working to promote social justice, human rights and a respect for international law.
Project Development and Action Planning
Participants develop projects designed to engage their peers in informed and respectful dialogue about the role of government and non-governmental entities, and youth in addressing some of the most pressing global challenges. Summer program participants implement their projects at their schools or in their communities during the following academic year
Global Kids provides participants with year-round coaching and support. Students are invited to participate in Global Kids roundtables at the Council on Foreign Relations and have access to the Council's web-based resources.
