Hands on Learning

Last summer our students embarked on an unforgettable journey that included a visit to the EEOB right at the White House campus. They had the privilege of engaging in a captivating roundtable discussion with esteemed leaders such as Asma Mirza, the Chief Performance Officer for the State of Maryland, and Dhuah Baig, a Foreign Affairs Officer at the U.S. Department of State. They even had the chance to meet with a representative from the Domestic Policy Council.

This summer, students will have the exciting opportunity to visit the Embassy of Kosovo and the Embassy of Ukraine. During these visits, they will engage in direct discussions with ambassadors and the First Secretary of Public & Cultural Diplomacy. Additionally, students will explore museums, including the National Archives Museum, enriching their understanding of global affairs and cultural heritage.
