World Affairs Challenge

The World Affairs Challenge (WAC) is dedicated to developing tomorrow’s global leaders. With mentoring, education and competition, WAC ignites middle-school and high-school students’ passions about world affairs. WAC engages youth to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. WAC students move from awareness to action while learning to think critically, collaborate, communicate and grow human capacity.  To learn more about us, visit  For more about our participation in the Colfax Marathon, contact Patty Guimaraes,
