American Youth Leadership Program Disability Component


The Office of Citizen Exchanges, Youth Programs Division, of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces an open competition for an American Youth Leadership Program Disability Component. Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to implement an exchange program for American high school students and educators that will enable the participants to gain firsthand knowledge of foreign cultures and to collaborate on solving global issues. The award recipients will recruit and select 15- 25 youth and one to three adult participants from the United States and provide them with a three- to four-week exchange program in select countries abroad focused on dialogue and debate, leadership development, and community service. Upon returning home, the participants will apply what they have learned to serve their schools and communities. It is the Bureau‟s intent to award one cooperative agreement for approximately $200,000, pending the availability of funds.
