The Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYELP) is a two week youth leadership program which brings high school students from across Iraq to Burlington, VT. While visiting Vermont, IYLEP participants will study leadership, civic engagement, community development, and life in the U.S. This year, we will need hosts available between July 23rd and August 6th. We would prefer that participants remain with one family for the duration of their stay, but we realize that 13 days is a large commitment. As such, families who are willing to host for part of the program (i.e. the first or second week) will also be considered!”
