Diplomatic Perspective is asking for your support on this this #GivingTuesday! Giving Tuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity. As a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, it is our goal to bridge the gap in international affairs by connecting diverse youth to underrepresented young adults. If we can achieve this goal, we can act as a driving force to cultivate and enhance future diplomatic leaders and peacemakers. Today, we’re asking supporters to donate $5, $10, or $20 to help us reach our goal of $5,000. Your donations will help support our DC high school students participating in the Diplomatic Leaders Development Program (DLDP).
Diplomatic Leaders Development Program
The Diplomatic Leaders Development Program (DLDP) is a 6-month program geared towards developing high school students within the Washington, D.C. area into global citizens through cultural sessions, skills institutes, and international projects. Each month, students participate in educational and engaging sessions, develop a global network, and receive the opportunity to have a global experience virtually.
This year, we were extremely grateful to have launched and accepted 17 students into our pilot program. Upon securing a partnership with DC Public Schools, 9 students from Ron Brown College Preparatory High School and McKinley Technology High School have diligently participated in our monthly virtual sessions since this October. We’ve onboarded 15 mentors from Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and 2 industry professional mentors. To-date, our team has led 3 virtual sessions with all students and 4 speakers, focusing on international relations and humanitarian work.
With your support, we can secure passport vouchers for our DLDP students and help raise funds for future study/volunteer abroad trips. You can donate by visiting this link. Let’s give back this #GivingTuesday, and help us reimagine a world built upon shared humanity by giving students access to international opportunities.
