WHAT IS SWAC?
Student World Affairs Councils (SWACs) provide opportunities for high school students to engage at a local and global level by competing in trivia, meeting internationally-acclaimed speakers and preparing for future career goals.
Participants are eligible to receive World Affairs Council certificates, professional polos and graduation cords, and can attend World Affairs Council international affairs programming at a discounted rate.
