Who is Attending the Program?
WYSE National Youth Delegates
Students attending the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment (WYSE) serve as National Youth Delegates, and take an active part in the curriculum through small group activities, unique events and decision-making simulations that challenge them to solve problems and explore the creative, practical, and ethical tensions inherent in the environmental arena.

The experiential portion of the WYSE is complemented by expert speakers who are well-known leaders in the environmental and conservation fields. Speakers include prominent researchers, directors of prestigious institutions and recent college graduates who are already successful in these fields. Speakers will engage our National Youth Delegates in thought discussions, exercises on the topics and energy-charged role-playing experiences that will take them far beyond a traditional classroom experience.

During these intensive educational programs, students will be led in small groups by faculty advisers who have extensive experience in teaching journalism and media.  In addition, the program is enhanced by our resident faculty of esteemed professors in Communication. Students will have an opportunity to network with the nation’s top journalism and media professionals, as well as with their dynamic peers, throughout the week. 

WJMC National Youth Correspondents
Students attending the Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC) serve as National Youth Correspondents and take part in hands-on, experiential learning through decision-making simulations that challenge them to solve problems and explore the creative, practical, and ethical tensions inherent in journalism and media.

The experiential portion of WJMC is complemented by speakers who are well-known leaders in the field.  These presenters range from prominent journalists to CEOs of major media outlets, and from researchers to recent college graduates already successful in the field.  Speakers will engage participants in discussions on the topics explored in the energy-charged role-playing experiences, taking the National Youth Correspondents far beyond a traditional classroom experience.  The conference will also offer a handful of opportunities to take advantage of visiting the nation’s capital, with tours of the U.S. Capitol and the Smithsonian Museums.
