Global Ties Arizona builds and strengthens relationships between its community members, citizens, businesses, and nations through international exchange and educational programs. The organization is recognized as Arizona’s leader in citizen diplomacy, promoting cultural awareness, and instilling an ethos of global engagement and learning.

One of its important initiatives is the Young Diplomats program for high school students, which takes place in June. The deadline to apply for this year’s program has been extended to April 14, 2024.

About The Program

The Young Diplomats program is designed to help Arizona high school students hone the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed — and lead — in a globally-interconnected world.

This 2.5-day program is designed to provide students with a deep exploration of the fundamental principles and practical applications of diplomacy, global civic responsibility, and potential careers in international relations.

While at the Institute, participants will have the valuable opportunity to learn about global issues directly from visiting faculty and experts. They will engage with influential global changemakers and take part in hands-on activities geared towards developing essential skills such as research, cross-cultural communication, leadership, public speaking, and effective teamwork.

All 10th, 11th, and 12th graders in the Greater Phoenix region are welcome to apply!

There is no cost to students to participate, and students that complete the full program will receive an official certificate of completion.

Please see the program overview below or visit Global Ties Arizona for more details. Program Sessions will take place June 10-11 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The June 12 session will take place from 8:30 am to 12 pm, followed by a closing luncheon. The June 12 closing luncheon (tentatively 12:30-2 pm) location will be announced at a later date.
