High school students from D.C. Public Schools will have the opportunity to meet with Hillary Clinton's Chief of Staff, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and a World Bank executive director this month.

"For many students living in Washington, D.C., they don't get to interact with the international dimension of the city," says Eddie Mandhry, director of Global Kids.

Global Kids is the organization behind the initiative, and Mandhry says the idea is to engage underserved kids in international affairs and global human rights and to expose them to international careers.

"The other dimension is to getting young people to understand the role of the United States in the world," he says.

The summer program will end in August with a trip to Haiti, where the 25 students will see earthquake recovery first hand.
