Southeast Asia Youth Leadership Program (SEAYLP)
November 18, 2016

The Southeast Asia Youth Leadership Program (SEAYLP) is a three-week U.S.-based exchange program for upper secondary school students (ages 15-17) and adult mentors from ASEAN member countries.  The exchange activities will focus on civic education, leadership, diversity, and volunteerism, which will prepare participants to conduct projects at home that serve a community need.  Program activities will be replicable and interactive so the participants learn concrete skills they can use once they return home.  Participants will live with American families for most of the exchange period and will have multiple opportunities to interact with American youth and educators.
