The Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) enables Iraqi and U.S. high school students, undergraduate students, and adult mentors to develop leadership skills and build action plans to strengthen the future of Iraq and the U.S. Founded in 2007, IYLEP has brought together over 3000 young leaders together to foster relationships among youth from different backgrounds and promote mutual understanding between the people of Iraq and the U.S.

World Learning encourages all qualified individuals from all backgrounds in Iraq to apply.
