The World Affairs Council literally "brings the World to Pittsburgh" by inviting international leaders, scholars, and decision-makers to Pittsburgh to share their insight on very timely events that shape our world. Council members and participants have the opportunity to meet and enter into discussion with these international leaders and experts. The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is a very vibrant organization. I had the privilege of visiting Brussels and Prague with fellow Pittsburgh professionals via the World Affairs Council- an opportunity to learn first hand about the European Union and the challenges facing Europe from economic and political perspectives. What a tremendous opportunity!!

The Worlds Affairs Council has been instrumental in directing the development of a virtual cross cultural exchange experience for high school students in the Pittsburgh area. As a support coordinator with CIEE they have offered me their expertise, support and partnerships allowing hundreds of high schools the opportunity to participate in a unique virtual classroom across cultures with participants spanning the globe from Brazil to China. Too name a few, students from Germany, Denmark, Brazil, China and America have come together throughout the school year to share ideas, thoughts, traditions and cultures in an effort to gain awareness and understanding about the cultural differences that exist. Through this project students from varying cultures are learning how to relate and respond to the differences that will not only enhance their current learning experiences but will impact their future as they prepare for college and the global workplace they will soon enter into.
