The Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative empowers entrepreneurs and innovative civil society leaders to strengthen their capacity to launch and advance their entrepreneurial ideas and effectively contribute to social and economic development in their communities.

In fall 2017, 250 YLAI Professional Fellows from Latin America and the Caribbean will expand their leadership and entrepreneurial experience through fellowships at businesses and civil society organizations across the U.S. The selected fellows will also participate in a Program Opening in Atlanta, Georgia; an Entrepreneurship Institute; and a Closing Summit in Washington, D.C. Following the Program, the Fellows can participate in extended alumni activities such as local and regional conferences, travel and innovation grants, and extended entrepreneurial education.
