Registration forms and fees for the Young Diplomats program due June 1
Hampton University’s Young Diplomats summer program will take place on the campus from June 24 to June 30.
The weeklong residential program is open to rising ninth- through 12th-graders.
The program will provide participants with an international scope to view one of our country’s biggest competitors, China.
Students will study topics like human rights, economic development, leadership for the 21st century and social implications of the arts.
Participants will propose solutions to various issues as diplomats at a mock US-China summit.
The week will include a trip to the Chinese Embassy and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C.
“We’re excited to offer students an experience that captures so many things, including international affairs, human rights and overall leadership skills,” program director Letizia Gambrell-Boone said in the press release. “Academically, this program will give participants a leg up in matters of diplomacy in a structured, college environment.”
Registration forms and fees are due June 1.
Hampton University is at 11 Frissell Ave. in Hampton.
