Delegation studying youth development models around the USA
10.15.2010– Park City-based Center for Global Leadership (CGL) recently hosted a delegation from Morocco. The delegation has been traveling around the United States for the past three weeks, studying models for developing the next generation of young leaders.
The Morocco delegation is part of the US State Department’s long-running International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), a program designed to build healthy and productive relationships between the United States and foreign countries. Each US Embassy around the world identifies high potential young leaders within the host country to participate in the program.
According to Martin Fox, CGL President & CEO, “The International Visitor Leadership Program alumni include 40 current and former Heads-of-State from around the world. When you interact with the IVLP delegations, you are literally working with the future leaders of their respective countries. We thank the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for connecting us with the Morocco delegation, as well as previous delegations from Israel and the Palestinian Territories.”
CGL trains, mentors, and resources young entrepreneurs in the USA and around the globe. CGL’s work is followed by people from 122 countries and 6 continents. Learn more about the Center’s work at http://www.LeadGlobally.org.
