Youth Leadership Programs
The Youth Leadership Program fosters mutual understanding, respect, and civic engagement among young Americans and their international peers. During the exchanges, students and educators participate in workshops, community service activities, team building exercises, meetings with community leaders, leadership development, and live with American families. Upon their return home, the students apply what they have learned to implement projects that serve needs in their communities. These programs are sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
