WorldChicago Youth Diplomats

WorldChicago Youth Diplomats is an 8-month experiential learning program to equip and empower Chicago teens to be active global citizens. Youth Diplomats brings 40 Chicagoland students together once per month to explore topics in global affairs and diplomacy and build essential skills in leadership and cross-cultural communication.

An Educational Experience

Students discover college and career options, network with global experts, and do service projects with an international impact. The students also learn about the people, culture, and issues from global peers.

WorldChicago Youth Diplomats met Jane Goodall at the Field Museum's Women in Science Luncheon in 2018

Little did I know that these new comrades and our mentors would open my eyes to exciting opportunities both within the city and around the world. I’ve created close friendships with Iraqi students during their visit that will last for years to come, corresponded with business leaders from Southeastern Europe after they returned home, and connected with State Department officials about potential employment opportunities in the future… WorldChicago has brought so much into my life, and I cannot express my gratitude enough!
