Since 1966, the American Council of Young Political Leaders, or ACYPL, has been giving emerging leaders the opportunity to travel internationally and make new connections with their peers across the aisle and around the world. We run an array of exchange programs that give tomorrow’s leaders a global perspective, from delegations of Americans traveling abroad to groups of international leaders traveling to the U.S.

With the steadfast support of the U.S. Department of State and a score of other partners, over 8,900 leaders in the U.S. and in 129 countries and territories around the world have traveled on our life-changing exchange programs – a network of global leaders that includes prime ministers, governors, U.S. Cabinet members, members of Congress, statewide elected officials, and hundreds of current and former members of Parliament around the world.
