The Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) is a four-week youth leadership exchange based in the United States for Iraqi teenagers. The program aims to develop a cadre of young adults in Iraq who have a strong sense of civic responsibility, a commitment to community development, an awareness of current and global issues, strong interpersonal leadership skills, and a willingness to foster relationships among youth from different ethnic, religious, and national groups. The students coming to Seattle will spend two weeks exploring issues related to peacebuilding and community resilience.
