Guest Speaker School Visits
 Guests of the Council often participate in visits to local high schools to speak to students. The Alaska World Affairs Council brings world-class weekly speakers to speak to Anchorage high school students at no cost to the schools. Guests usually construct a presentation unique to students, highlighting not only their topic, but also their life experience and words of wisdom. This is a great opportunity for students to hear from a variety of experts without leaving their schools.
Internships and Job Opportunities
The Alaska World Affairs Council is committed to supporting, inspiring, educating and mentoring students in every way possible. The Alaska World Affairs Council is proud to have received a 2007 Outstanding Partnership Award of Excellence for our school/business partnership with the Anchorage School District.


The Alaska World Affairs Council is a focused educational organization dedicated to stimulating interest in world affairs and inspiring its members to be involved in world events. The council was founded in 1958 by the late Evangeline Atwood with the conviction that better community education in world affairs is necessary for sound democratic citizenship. The Council does not take a stand on current-day issues but rather provides the population a wide spectrum of viewpoints and background information through its diverse range of programs and activities. The Alaska World Affairs Council is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, non-partisan organization which is membership-based and is one of approximately 90 members of the World Affairs Councils of America in Washington, DC.
