Teen Summer Program


Applications for the TEEN SUMMER PROGRAM 2024 have closed

Experience the in-demand Teen Summer Program (TSP), a unique three-week opportunity held each summer for teens aged 16-18 whose parents are employed at the WBG, IMF, or IDB. This special program features presentations by expert speakers from these organizations, offering valuable insights into the professional domains of the participants' parents. Seminars, mock parliaments and development projects are some ways in which teens are taken down educational, creative and self-developmental avenues which they can explore, experience and benefit from.

The Teen Summer Program is centered around three key objectives:

  • 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.

The youth and their perspective as global citizens, possess an extraordinary potential to influence the trajectory of our planet's development, especially in addressing pivotal global challenges and can play a crucial role in driving change that require a collective, inclusive, and innovative approach. By embracing their roles as informed, empathetic, and proactive global citizens adaptive to change, they can significantly contribute to creating a more sustainable, equitable, technologically advanced, and livable planet.

Our “Successful Change Lab " will be that dynamic, collaborative environment, or platform which will increase their awareness, support personal development, and enable them to come together to create, experiment, and successfully implement innovative solutions for complex problems or challenges.
