The WorldChicago Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program is for high school students and provides four weeks of a fully-funded exchange program to talented Iraqi and U.S. students who demonstrate leadership and civic engagement in their communities. During the program, the 10 U.S. high school students, 36 Iraqi high school students, and four Iraqi adult mentors will engage in experiential learning activities and workshops that will further guide their knowledge of civic engagement and intercultural communication across the different program components in Vermont, a host city in the U.S., and Washington, D.C. There is no cost to apply or participate in the program! The U.S. Department of State will fully fund students’ academic study, travel, housing, and will provide a modest living allowance. Deadline: January 15, 2017. Apply at: iylep.tumblr.com/apply.
