Teen Summer Program
The Teen Summer Program is held every summer for three weeks and organized by the World Bank Family Network, IMF Family Association, and the IADB Family Association. Each week program participants will attend sessions at each of the financial institutions. Simulated real-life situations and role-play with staff and other professionals provide a look inside these international organizations and give the participants an opportunity to debate current global issues and interventions. Additional sessions and presentations on personal and professional development will complement these thematic exercises.
Registration for the 2019 Teen Summer will open at 12 noon EST on February 19 and will close February 28 at 12 noon EST
The Teen Summer Program (TSP) is a much sought-after three-week program held every summer for teens (16-18 years old) whose parents work at the WBG, IMF or IADB. This unique program features expert, professional speakers from the three organizations and offers teenagers insight into the fields in which their parents work. The three objectives of the Teen Summer program are:
- Foster the awareness of being a Global Citizen
- Better knowledge and understanding of the three multilateral organizations
- Personal development: cross-cultural skills, communication, collaboration and self-awareness
Seminars, mock parliaments and town halls are some ways in which teens are taken down educational, creative and self-developmental avenues which they can explore, experience and benefit from. Debating current global issues and interventions made to alleviate global inequality in the economic and social sectors sets them on the path to becoming global citizens themselves! Volunteers are involved in the planning from January to June, and then on the days of the program.
The Teen Summer Program 2019 will begin on Jun 24 and conclude on Jul 11.
