Are you Interested in global affairs? Do you like learning about different cultures?

The Youth Diplomats Program is a nine month experiential learning program to equip teens in Kansas and Missouri with the tools necessary for success in a global society.


We’ll meet once a month to explore topics in global affairs and diplomacy.  You’ll build your cross-cultural communication skills in the process, discover college and career options, network with global experts, and participate in service projects alongside international visitors.  


  • Attend 6/8 of the meeting dates between September and May

  • Be a high school student (grade 9-12) in the 2019-2020 school year

  • Commit to using the lessons and material in the Kansas City community
