ACTIVATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF GLOBAL CITIZENS
The Global Ties KC Youth Diplomats Retreat is a one-day experiential learning program to equip and empower teens to be active global citizens. Students from all over Kansas and Missouri will come together to explore topics of global affairs & diplomacy through a full-day workshop. Students will develop leadership potential, learn about global careers, and work through team-based exercises. There is no fee for students to participate in the Youth Diplomats Retreat.
