“Town Hall is extremely valuable for students. It provides them with a view of a bigger world outside of the limited experience they have. It opens up the world for them.”
– Ms. Stephanie Hoffman, Teacher, Foshay Learning Center

Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall believes the best way to inspire the leaders of tomorrow is to provide them with opportunities to interact with the leaders of today. Our Student Program, founded in 1987, enables public school students to gain a better understanding of our democratic traditions while attending our events at no cost to the schools. Funding for the program pays, in full, the attendance fee of students and their faculty chaperone. Through the generosity of our members and community, nearly 15,000 students from 135 schools have joined us since the program’s inception.

If you are a faculty member or school administrator interested in bringing students to our programs, please click here for more information.
