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 129 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.

To connect with alumni from other U.S. Department of State programs, check out the International Exchange Alumni Page.
