The High School Foreign Service Association is a society of high school clubs. Backed by the American Foreign Service Association, it was created to help students pursue their interests in foreign policy and become full citizens of our rapidly globalizing world. It aspires to provide students with an opportunity to find like-minded individuals and to share ideas and knowledge. The organization cherishes the ideals and freedoms of the United States, and it strives to raise youth awareness of how important the Foreign Service is in maintaining these. The HSFSA’s long-term goal is to facilitate the creation of a new generation of leaders who will ensure that the US remains a leader of the global community and continues to promote freedom and democracy.
