    “Being a part of a World Citizen Club helps students have a better understanding of the different issues our world faces today. They have a chance to come up with different solutions and ideas and learn from one another”

    —Semawit, World Citizen Club Member

    As the school year begins, the World Service Authority (WSA), along with its co-sponsor Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS), is launching World Citizen Clubs on college, university, and high school campuses around the world. The WSA and CGS are nonprofit organizations that promote world citizenship, universal human rights, and global structures of law for a peaceful, just and sustainable world.

    What is the World Citizen Club Program?

    WSA and CGS encourage students to advance the mission of world peace through world citizenship and world law. The World Citizen Club Program, a grassroots movement, engages teens and young adults in world citizenship education and activism, inspiring students to become world peacemakers.

    Individual World Citizen Clubs will endeavor to

    1. Advocate and Educate
    2. Build Community
    3. Support awareness of and respect for universal rights and world citizenship

    Students in World Citizen Clubs will engage in educational, service, and social events and projects that promote world citizenship, world peace, and human rights. Clubs will provide students with the opportunity to take local action on global issues.

    How to Create a World Citizen Club

    Creating a World Citizen Club on campus is a simple process. Students speak with their friends and classmates to find potential club members. They find a faculty advisor, draft a club constitution, register their club with World Service Authority, and promote the club at the beginning of each semester during club and student activities fairs. Once the club is launched, students schedule periodic meetings, events and projects to engage club participants and the wider school community in world citizenship activities.

    Examples of Club Events and Projects

    • heritage food potluck dinners
    • world trivia nights
    • cultural celebrations
    • global music and dance performances
    • speakers on human rights, international law, and peace issues
    • refugee assistance through food drives and advocacy campaigns
    • film and documentary screenings

    Benefits for Students

    • network with experts in the international community
    • interact with students from other parts of the world
    • engage academic learning outside the classroom
    • acquire multicultural competencies, a top priority for employers
    • make a difference in their communities and the world

    For More Information

    Visit the Club’s website: http://www.worldcitizenclub.org. Students, faculty and staff will find tools and materials to create a World Citizen Club on their campus. The website includes guides and information such as a 5-page Club Start-Up Guide, which explains the benefits of the club, how to create a club, and suggested events, projects and programs. Sample club constitutions, terms of behavior, brochures, and promotional flyers are also available at the website.
