We are committed to bringing the world to Harrisburg.
The World Affairs Council of Harrisburg is a leading organization dedicated to promoting global education and cultural exchange in our region. We are affiliated with the World Affairs Councils of America, a prominent organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., and we draw on a wealth of resources and expertise from our national network of like-minded organizations.
We are committed to engaging the residents of our region in global issues and to fostering a more informed and interconnected world. We accomplish this through our many programs and events, which offer opportunities for our associates to meet and interact with some of the most influential international writers, intellectuals, diplomats, and political leaders of our time.
We also recognize the importance of nurturing the next generation of global citizens, and we are committed to making these opportunities available to youth in our region. By engaging with leading figures in the international community, our youth associates have the opportunity to broaden their horizons and develop a nuanced understanding of complex global issues. Through these experiences, we aim to equip the next generation with the tools and knowledge they need to become leaders and change-makers in an increasingly interconnected world.
