About International Visitor Leadership Program:

The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Through short-term visits to the United States, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience this country firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts. Professional meetings reflect the participants’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States.

This group is focused on Women Promoting Peace and Security and are from Latin and Central America!

About Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative:

Denver, Colorado: WorldDenver is pleased to announce that it will host participants from the U.S. Department of State’s Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows Program in September and October 2018. As part of the Fellowship, 13 young business and social entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Caribbean will travel to Denver and be placed with local businesses, non-profits, and similar entities to advance their entrepreneurial ideas and gather best practices to bring back to their home country.  For more information about the Fellows who will be in Denver, please refer to their biographies.

The participants will arrive on September 22 and will further develop their business or organizational plans by engaging in skills-building workshops.  They will also learn from U.S. counterparts by participating in day-to-day operations at their U.S. host organizations and collaborating on a joint project.  YLAI Professional Fellows will develop stronger ties with other participants from Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as with their U.S. Fellowship Hosts.

To complement the U.S.-based program, Fellowship Hosts from 20 cities around the U.S. will be selected to travel to the region in spring 2019 to implement a project that can benefit the community.  They will also share best practices and support the progress of the Fellows’ action plans.  Additionally, U.S. Fellowship Hosts will participate in speaking events and small-scale trainings.

WorldDenver is partnering with 14 companies and organizations that are serving as Fellowship Hosts for the duration of the four-week Fellowship:
