Junior Council on World Affairs

Numerous high schools in the Dayton region have chartered Junior Council on World Affairs (JCOWA) chapters.  Students who participate in JCOWA enjoy monthly activities focused on international topics.  In addition, DCOWA hosts multiple regional events during the school year to bring together these students for engaging programs on world affairs. Scroll through these events using the gallery slideshow to the right of the page, and find event details for the current JCOWA season on the list of events on our homepage.
