San Diego Diplomacy Council: The Global Leadership Youth Program (Grades 9–12)

The Global Leadership Youth Program is a unique opportunity for students from across the globe to learn about international affairs and diplomacy while building their conflict-resolution and negotiation skills. With a unique itinerary of guest speakers, diplomacy simulations, group projects and cultural enrichment activities, this program is ideal for students looking to increase their cultural understanding and global acumen while building their resumes and connections with other students. 

LJCDS Upper School students have the option to receive course credit. This requires completing all four Upper School–level modules (June 27–July 1 and July 11–29), asynchronous readings, a research paper and an original diplomatic simulation. LJCDS students meeting these requirements earn a one-semester Upper School humanities elective credit.

Module 1: Introduction to International Relations
Module 2: Pandemic Diplomacy: Infectious Disease as a Global Challenge
Module 3: From Discrimination to Genocide: Racism & Systemic Inequality
Module 4: Climate Action: How to Keep 1.5 Alive
June 27–July 29 (LJCDS is closed July 4-8)

For-credit price: $2,160 (must complete all four modules)
