Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program 2013

In summer 2013, Meridian International Center implemented the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP), a series of summer exchange programs in the United States for Iraqi high school and undergraduate students sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Each program, which took place in late June and August 2013, gave young Iraqis the chance to build their leadership skills and develop the tools needed to implement their own youth-led projects for community change upon their return home.
