Annually, the Council’s Global Young Leaders program hosts leadership trainings for North Texas high school students participating in Junior World Affairs Council (JWAC) clubs. In addition, the TOP TEN JWACs hold student-led discussions over a current event topic monthly. 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. Students plan and execute the event with help of the Council, and in turn, learn first-hand leadership traits.
