Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program

Meridian implements the U.S. Department of State’s Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program (PAYLP). This dynamic youth leadership program brings together students from across Africa with adult mentors for a three week U.S.-based training and cultural exchange. The program strengthens the students’ understanding of civic rights and responsibilities, respect for diversity, and the importance of community engagement. Also included in the PAYLP design is a series of workshops on social entrepreneurship and two weeks of living with American host families.

Applicants interested on the program should contact the nearest US embassy regarding more information as Meridian is not involved in the recruitment or selection process.

Please contact PAYLP@meridian.org for more information.
