Speakers to Schools Programs

Speakers to Schools enhance classroom studies and expose students to international cultures, religions, issues and careers.

JWAC members and educational associates may request a topic and the World Affairs Council will find a local speaker that meets the request. Speakers will visit the high school classroom, speak to students and answer their questions as a complimentary membership benefit. This program is incredibly useful to educators in need of relevant resources for their classrooms.

Teachers can choose from 130+ topics that cover subject areas including: the arts, business, conflicts/social issues, countries/regions, education, environment, economy, health/science, history, media, non-governmental efforts, politics/government and religion.
