Council EDGE provides an opportunity for young professionals (ages 21-40) to develop a greater understanding of the world while connecting with others who share an interest in international affairs.

Mentor Program

Council EDGE Midway Meetup

2023-24 Cohort

By pairing our young professional members with members of our Board of Directors and Advisory Council, we’re fostering the next generation of leadership for Northeast Florida. After an application process and interviews, mentors and mentees spend nine months developing a long-lasting relationship through group and individual outings, including attending select World Affairs Council events.

The 2023-24 application period is closed. Please check back for more information on the 2024-25 cohort.

Leading EDGE Dialogues

Hosted by our young professionals (but open to all our members), Leading EDGE Dialogues integrate social gatherings with expert discussions so that our members can stay on the cutting edge of global issues that impact today and tomorrow. These evening dialogues feature a reception for networking followed by a presentation and dialogue.
