Apply to the 2019 Young Leaders Program

January 24, 2019

The French-American Foundation is accepting applications between January 15, 2019 and March 20, 2019 for the 2019 Young Leaders program in Chicago.

Created in 1981, the Foundation’s Young Leaders program brings together a vibrant group of French and American professionals, aged 30 to 40, from an incredible array of sectors whose common link is their passion about forging bonds in a globalized world and using their influence for the common good.

In this two-year program, alternating each year between France and the United States, a group of 40 Young Leaders spends five days together discussing issues of common concern, meeting with local and global specialists, and getting to know one another. The Foundation covers Young Leaders’ travel and lodging expenses for both meetings.

After two years as Young Leaders, participants join an active community of lifelong alumni. Alumni attend and organize events, use the network to advance common causes, and are encouraged to contribute to the program’s future success.
