The American Youth Leadership Program is sponsored by the Youth Programs Division of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The Cambodia program is one of eight AYLP programs. AYLP is designed to advance mutual understanding between the people of the United States and of other countries, prepare youth leaders to become responsible citizens, spark an interest in learning about foreign cultures, and develop a cadre of Americans with cultural understanding who are able to advance international dialogue and compete effectively in the global economy.
With experience leading international exchange projects since 1983, the Mansfield Center has extensive and well-established relationships in Cambodia, as well as experience with high school educational travel overseas.
