The World Diplomatic Forum and Ambassadorial Roundtable support information dissemination of world events, their impact upon global and United States foreign policy and committed to generating new ideas, bringing different parties together to the negotiation table and easing of global tensions by initiating open debates. We foster global education and early exposure to international affairs through our "Diplomats for Kids " program, creating the opportunity for underprivileged students to meet with foreign diplomats and learn about travel, foreign countries and diplomacy.
