Review for World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh has proved to be an invaluable asset as an educator. They are able to offer the students opportunities to connect with global leaders and world citizens. Students are able to participate in video-conferences either in attendance with the host or via conferencing equipment as well as being invited to attend lectures and conferences. Students need exposure to new ideas, people and cultures, the council allows them these types of opportunities consistently. A wonderful example of their work was bringing famed author and Iranian expert Dr. Trita Parsi. The World Affairs Council procured Dr. Parsi's latest book for students to read and analyze and then brought him to Cornell for an informative interview session with a group of World Cultures Students. Not only was Dr. Parsi and excellent resource for my students he was also an important influence on them. He shared his knowledge as well as his delight at how much Cornell students wanted to know and were willing to do in order to learn. Experiences like this can never be replaced for our students.
Beyond students, the World Affairs Council offers so much to teachers. They are willing to take the extra time to create a conference for your class or school, share any and all resources that they have, they even extend travel opportunities to teachers. They offer educators the opportunity to enrich their classrooms and they make it easy to do.
I have been fortunate enough to work with the World Affairs Council on several levels, please support their work! What they do for teachers, students and their community is unsurpassed!
