Young Diplomats Program
A Week-Long Residential Summer Program (July 21 - 27, 2013)
We bring the world to you!
Young Diplomats Program Early Registration is $600 if paid by 6/14.
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. Young Diplomats is a learning experience that will challenge students to think about a world much bigger than their own.
We will explore the people, culture and issues represented in one of our country's biggest competitors, China. We will study Chinese language and culture, leadership development, human rights issues, economic development and social implication of the arts. Participants will propose solutions as diplomats to strengthen relations at a culminating experience showcasing what students learned throughout the week. This experience will be enriched by a trip to the People's Republic of China Embassy in the United States and the United States Department of State in Washington, DC.
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, the art of debate, and how to launch a social venture. 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—tennis; horseback riding; sailing or bowling, swimming, fitness and watching a movie.
It is our sincere hope that your family will join ours for what promises to be an exciting opportunity. To register, participants must submit the $1,000 registration fee by June 3, 2013. Online registration will be available in April.
