The 2022 Youth Security Forum (YSF) will provide students in Washoe County high schools with an opportunity to discuss the war in Ukraine with national and global security experts from the Schar School of Policy and Government at the George Mason University and the National Security Forum of Nevada. Students from Government, History, and We The People classes will participate in interactive discussions about the history of Russia and Ukraine, risks of nuclear, biological, and chemical escalation, China’s role in the conflict, the impact of the war on global food security, and how money laundering is used to avoid sanctions on Russia.
YSF brings world renown national security experts into the classroom to meet, teach, and learn from tomorrow’s civic leaders and informed citizens.
