J-1 Exchange visitors: Department of State leadership opportunity

From the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs:

In August 2021, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Private Sector Exchange Directorate awarded the BridgeUSA Leadership Development Program grant to the Council on International Educational Exchange (see https://eca.state.gov/files/bureau/fy2021_bridgeusa_nofo.pdf for more information).

Up to 200 emerging leaders from BridgeUSA program categories will attend one of eight leadership development seminars in Washington, DC. Seminars will include three days of facilitated leadership development programming. 

Following the BridgeUSA Leadership Development program, these “citizen ambassadors” will share their new understanding of American values with their friends, family and greater community upon their return home. Details about the BridgeUSA Leadership Development Program – including information on how to apply – can now be found at https://www.bridgeusaldp.org/.
