Hampton University's Young Diplomats Summer Program provides a stimulating and enriching residential experience for high school (rising 9th -12th grade) students from around the country on the beautiful campus of Hampton University. We will study Chinese language and culture, leadership development, Chinese Diplomacy, economic development and Global Affairs. Participants will learn through global communication how the United States and China respond to humanitarian issues, thus, how societies help people. This experience will be enriched by a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit sites such as the Freer Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Museum and the U.S. China Foreign Policy Foundation

We have lined-up a group of renowned political and community leaders to inspire the diplomats on ways to make a difference in their communities. The diplomats will learn Robert's Rules of Order, and the art of debate. As well, students will enjoy dining and social etiquette to effect change in both formal and informal settings. To enhance this experience, the diplomats will receive instruction in the waltz and salsa with an opportunity to display their creative movements at the closing luncheon. Students will also have an opportunity for relaxation and unwinding through recreational activity, students can choose their preference of Chinese art/papermaking, horseback riding, sailing, or, fitness, and martial arts. For questions or concerns please contact the Student Success Center at 757-727-5913.
