Teach the World

Teach the World

The world in which our youth will be involved is rapidly changing. The World Affairs Council is proud to play a significant role in supporting global citizenship as a core element in the life of Oregon youth through programs like Teach The World. 

Teach the World is a state-wide K–12 educator conference and youth forum that connects Oregon teachers with the tools needed to ignite student interest in the diverse regions of the world using an engaging, multidisciplinary approach. Covering continents like Africa and regions such as the Middle East and East Asia, this series reaches hundreds of students yearly. Initiated by the Council in 2006 with Teach Africa, Teach the World was created to introduce educators and youth to a new region of the world each year building on the momentum achieved in each prior year’s regional focus. Building on that success, subsequent conferences and forums have highlighted the Middle East and East Asia, which will be completed with the Teach East Asia Youth Forum in December 2011.
