Global Vision Summits


Twice a year, PAAC holds inter-school summits, bringing together public and private school students to gain insight on and discuss key international issues. Summit themes are often introduced through simulations and role-play activities, giving youth the chance to step into the shoes of world leaders to better understand the complexities of global issues. Past summit themes have included refugees, the South China Sea, microfinance, human trafficking, pandemics, and homelessness.  Students are also provided meaningful opportunities to explore careers by listening to presentations and roundtables with professionals from international and local organizations.
