Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program in Zambia

The U.S. Embassy in Zambia is seeking applications for its Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program (PAYLP), a three-week exchange program in the United States for high school students aged 15-18 years old.

The Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program will target as many as 39 countries to support the U.S. government goals of fostering regional cooperation on the continent in addition to nurturing young leaders.

During the exchanges, participants will engage in workshops on leadership and service, community site visits related to the program themes and sub themes, interactive training, presentations, visits to high schools, local cultural activities, and home stays with local American families.

Follow-on activities with the participants are an integral part of the program, as the students apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired by planning service projects in their home communities.
