The U.S. Consulate General in Toronto has developed a “Speakers Bureau” for our American diplomats to organize speaking events and build institutional relationships with secondary schools in the Greater Toronto Area. The Speakers Bureau Program is a common program of U.S. Consulates and Embassies abroad to engage local high-schools bringing U.S. diplomats and other expert speakers to their classrooms and developing long-term relationships to work on projects of mutual interest.
Our diplomat’s recent presentations have focused on United States-Canada bilateral relations, life and work in the Foreign Service, historical and digital diplomacy, and global citizenship and social justice. Teachers and high-school administrators are welcome to suggest other topics and points of discussion related to their curriculum and course academic focus. Our speakers can also tailor presentations for different academic interests and audiences in a variety of interactive formats, such as lectures, panels, roundtables, and discussion groups.
Our speakers have presented in Toronto, Burlington, Brampton, Mississauga, Bolton, and Markham. They have spoken to classes on Canadian and World Issues, World History since the Fifteenth Century, Challenge and Change in Society, International Law, International Business, and to other courses in the International Baccalaureate Program as well as to clubs like Model United Nations. We would like to hear from teachers, school administrators, classes, and clubs who are interested in the program and are welcome to contact us with questions.
