PARTNERSHIP WITH CFR
Global Kids' partnership with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the world’s leading international affairs think tank, has given our young people unique access to some of the world's leading foreign policy experts.
The Summer Institute at the Council on Foreign Relations is an innovative year-long program that first brings high school students to the Council’s headquarters for three intensive weeks to interface with experts about critical foreign policy issues. Following the summer experience, the teens develop peer education projects in their schools and communities to educate others and promote debate on key foreign policy topics.
Since 1997, GK Leaders have discussed with CFR Fellows, staff, and members critical foreign policy issues ranging from the the crisis in Syria to nuclear proliferation to the rise of cryptocurrencies. This exceptional partnership offers a series of year-round events, including the Summer Institute at the CFR and monthly roundtables with CFR Fellows.
