World Affairs Council

The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia co-founded Bodine High School in 1981 in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia. By providing a part-time, on-site liaison, the Council enriches Bodine’s global curriculum, expands academic opportunities, and builds Bodine’s technological capacity. In addition, the Council provides administrative and community support for Bodine’s various annual programs, such as the Spring Trip Abroad, International Day, Shakespeare Festival, Senior Projects, Career Day and the One Book, One Philadelphia Program.

For more information please visit the Council’s website or contact Kasey Trapp, John Lazarich Leadership Liaison at Bodine High School, by email at or by telephone at 215-561-4700 ext. 207.

The World Affairs/Model United Nations Club meets every Thursday after-school in Room 308!

This year, Bodine is working with the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization Inspire U.S. to promote voter registration and voter participation among Bodine students, especially seniors who will be eligible to vote in this year’s midterm elections. Check out the first edition of the Ambassador Report to hear from Hilary Kinney, Bodine’s Inspire U.S. representative, to learn more about our efforts to increase civic engagement among Bodine students.
