Become an Albrecht Fellow

The World Trade Center Institute's (WTCI) mission is to empower the Mid-Atlantic business community to drive growth and global good. One way we do this is by supporting the next generation of global citizens.

Our Youth Diplomats program serves high school sophmores through seniors.

Students accepted into the program receive our prestigious Albrecht fellowship, a unique opportunity giving these young leaders the mentorship and hands-on opportunities they need to better engage with the world
