Sister Cities International is inviting students ages 14-18 to participate in the 2017 Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) at the 61st Annual Conference in Virginia Beach, VA from July 12 -16, 2017.

The Youth Leadership Summit engages the next generation of leaders and introduces them to the world of international affairs. Through a specialized diplomatic simulation moderated by the U.S. Diplomacy Center, a service project, speaker sessions, and peer collaboration, participants will learn how different national interests drive international cooperation on critical issues. 

Over three days, the Youth Leadership Summit will provide students with effective problem solving strategies, leadership skills, and insights into international affairs—all while getting to know like-minded students from all over the world!
