For the leaders of tomorrow.
Each year Rotary District 6270 brings hundreds of curious, positive, intelligent high school age individuals from around the globe for the World Affairs Seminar.  Over the course of one week, student delegates are immersed in leadership and international relations activities.  The seminar will be held from June 20 through June 26, 2015 at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  
The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) is a unique interactive educational experience during which delegates from a variety of backgrounds discuss issues in a non-threatening environment. They experience new and different ideas and viewpoints brought forward both by their colleagues and world renowned experts. In small and large groups delegates discuss information and ideas and put their new knowledge to use.  Public policy simulations allow them to work through the complex interactions of different countries, corporations and organizations to develop their own policy initiative. The university setting provides a college-like experience, including use of the residence halls and campus dining. Throughout the week delegates have time for recreational activities which bring greater awareness and understanding of the world around them. Critical thinking, negotiation skills and the process of learning about new friends from around the world are all part of this incredible experience.
Each year WAS uses a different theme as a learning platform.  In 2015 it will be Global Energy.  In 2016 it will be Water.  In years past topics have ranged from Gender Equity & Social Justice to World Hunger.   Since 1977 over 27,000 young people from around the world have honed international relations and leadership skills thanks to WAS.
The seminar is for high school students aged 16 through 18.  Students must have a recommendation from their school and may be sponsored by one or more service clubs to cover the $650 registration (there are discounts available for early registration).
