About the Exchanges
Every year, with support from the United States Department of State, our international partner organizations, and a wide range of corporations, foundations, and individuals, ACYPL conducts a variety of exchanges for rising political leaders from across the United States and around the world. ACYPL has a network of over 8,500 alumni in 128 countries and territories.
ACYPL programs are designed for bipartisan groups of 7 emerging leaders under the age of 40 to experience another country’s political environment for 8-14 days. Participants visit the capital and 1-2 other cities to meet with government officials, political parties, elected leaders, policy experts, and members of the business community.
