Hemispheres is YIRA’s international relations teaching program. Once every week, Yale students meet with high school students from the New Haven area to explore a variety of topics in IR and develop analytical, creative, and critical thinking skills. The program culminates in a trip to Washington, DC to experience IR and policy making in action by meeting Ambassadors and Congressmen, while also sightseeing in this exciting, political center. As part of the program, Hemispheres students also attend the Yale Model United Nations conference – an excellent opportunity to apply new IR knowledge while tackling critical world issues and have an awesome time meeting new friends.
We will have trips to Philly, DC, and NYC, as well as larger mentorships activities
