YSEALI Professional Program Fellows Overview
The international fellows from each country will travel to Washington, DC for a 5-day program orientation and federal government overview as well as cultural outings. Each fellow will participate in a 4-week intensive fellowship in a separate political, policy, or civil society office with day-to-day mentoring and guidance from a single point of contact, their fellowship host. Together with their American hosts who are also ACYPL alumni, the fellows will attend meetings pertaining to current events in the area, and together will develop action plans for a series of follow-on activities to be conducted in the fellows’ home country.
At the conclusion of the program, all international fellows will return to Washington, DC for a 3-day Professional Fellows Congress where they will interact and share their experiences with other international fellows from different programs.
Upon returning to their home countries, select international fellows will work with their American hosts to create an 8-14 day program in which the American hosts will visit each of fellows’ places of employment to learn more about what they do, assist in the continuing implementation of their project, meet with local leaders, as well as enjoy cultural outings.
