 Welcome to the WorldLink Reader!

The WorldLink Reader, developed by high school interns, is a preparation tool for youth leaders attending WorldLink’s Annual Youth Town Meeting (YTM). Each year, over 750 middle and high school students attend this youth conference, where they discuss important global topics with leading experts from public and private organizations. YTMs are grounded in the belief that youth have much to offer and much to gain from discussion with experts and professionals regarding the complexities and challenges of international affairs.

WorldLink ~ Connecting Youth to Global Affairs is a program at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice at the University of San Diego’s Kroc School of Peace Studies.


The 2008 theme on climate change set precedence for the WorldLink program to set more eco-friendly standards. By making this Reader and other informational material available online, WorldLink will greatly reduce its use of paper. We have all of you students to thank for motivating us to reduce our own carbon footprint.
