The Colorado Springs World Affairs Council is proud to welcome college students and young professionals to join the CSWAC community as part of our Not Yet Retired (#NYR) Young Professionals cohort. The Young Professionals committee meets every few weeks to plan social and educational events for members that complement the organizations luncheon and evening programs.
The mission is to bring speakers from around the country and world with compelling stories and experiences to help Young Professionals understand the world around them from a truly global perspective and how seemingly distant and unrelated international affairs issues affects their lives here in Colorado Springs.
Besides a monthly #NYR Third Thursday Happy Hour each month, we host various speaker events throughout the year. Past events include hosting Raha Moharrak- the first Saudi woman to summit Mt. Everest, “Summer School” Pub talks with local professors, movie nights and panel discussions on topics ranging from Human Trafficking or Immigration.
This group is looking for young people in the Colorado Springs community who have an interest in international affairs, have an appreciation for cultural diversity, and would like to plan engaging events and social gatherings. For more questions, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
