The 2015 Youth Forum held on October 16th at the US Department of State was a great example of how GDW enriches everyone. Co-hosted by the Carl T. Rowan Chapter of Blacks In Government (BIGCTR) and the Presidential Management Fellow Advisory Council (PMFAC), the 2015 Youth Forum exposed talented students representing Benjamin Banneker Academic High school to careers in the field of international relations.
A diverse group of 130 students and participants had the opportunity to listen to panelists from various international development agencies, as well as welcoming speeches from senior-level officials highlighting the role of foreign affairs in our global economy.
