 School Outreach Committee

In 2000 the Naples Council on World Affairs formalized an Outreach Program to initiate involvement with local schools, both public and independent in the belief that promoting knowledge and understanding of global affairs and issue among young people is of vital important to our Country.  Over these past years, the Council’s Outreach Programs have increased dramatically from simply having its lecturer speak at Collier County schools, to offering a wide variety of programs detailed in the pages that follow. The volunteer Council members who comprise the Outreach Committee meet regularly during the season and by phone over the Summer to plan and execute Outreach activities.


As overseen by the School Outreach Committee, the Naples Council on World Affairs sends Naples high school students to two summer scholarship programs:

  • In 2020 we selected ten outstanding junior students from Naples high schools to travel overseas through the Experiment in International Living and Student Diplomacy Corps programs to broaden their experience and understanding of global issues, culture and politics.
    Unfortunately, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, these programs were cancelled. We intend to sponsor these same students to the programs next year after their high school graduation.
  • We also selected three talented students to attend summer academies on international affairs and national security at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. But the pandemic has also closed the Georgetown campus through the summer, and we are looking for alternative programs to award to our scholarship winners.

Please watch and listen to some of these talented youngsters as they reflect on what those experiences meant to them -
