The World Affairs Council of Dallas Fort Worth's Global Young Leaders (GYL) is an education program that creates an intelligent pathway for North Texas high school students to achieve ambitions in international careers. The GYL program is facilitated through clubs on high school campuses called Junior World Affairs Councils, which are available to public, private, charter, and home school students.

Each year, more than 8,000 students and 1,000 teachers are directly impacted by the GYL program. It's the only education initiative in the region focused on global competence, with Junior World Affairs Council clubs on 70 local high school campuses.


GYL’s levels of membership include students, educators, campuses, and districts. Student, teacher, or administrator, you are the perfect fit for one of our international opportunities!

2023 JWAC Discussion: Queen Elizabeth II
Manara Academy JWAC

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The long reign of Queen Elizabeth II was marked by her strong sense of duty and her determination to dedicate her life to her throne and to her people.

GYL_2023 March 29

She became for many the one constant point in a rapidly changing world as British influence declined, society changed beyond recognition and the role of the monarchy itself came into question.

Her success in maintaining the monarchy through such turbulent times was even more remarkable given that, at the time of her birth, no-one could have foreseen that the throne would be her destiny. -BBC
