The popular Teen Summer Program accepts applications from Feb 26 - Mar 07

The 2018 Teen Summer Program provides an opportunity for participants to learn about the history and activities of the WBG, IMF and IDB through staff presentations, interactive projects, group discussions and personal development sessions. Simulated real-life situations and role-play with staff and other professionals provide a look inside the three international organizations and give teens an opportunity to debate current global issues and interventions.

The program has been offered yearly since 2005, and attracts many applicants. The program is limited to 40 participants.
Final selection will be by interview. The selection process is expected to end in late April.

When? Three weeks from June 26th - July 12th, from 9:00am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday, at Headquarters in Washington, USA.
