Seth George

Strategic Administrator

Originally from the Phillippines, Seth has lived in the St. Louis region for over 20 years. From a young age, Seth considered himself a global citizen. His curiousity about the world and different cultures, propelled him to study abroad for a year during high school in Denmark. Upon his return to the US, he continued to serve as an AFS volunteer whether it was hosting exchange students, interviewing local  high school students to participate in AFS, or helping exchange students with cultural immersion in St. Louis.

Seth’s passion for cultural exchanges, led him to the World Affairs Council of St. Louis. He joined the Council in the Summer of 2021 as the program manager for the International Visitor Leadership Program. In the Fall of 2022, he assumed the position of Strategic Administrator. His passion is to create and develop relationships, seek solutions beyond their problems and use his creativity in all tasks.
