About

World Learning’s Digital Young Leaders Exchange Program (DYLEP) is a virtual exchange program for high school students in Iraq and the United States. Through DYLEP, students develop their leadership skills, interest in civic engagement, and respect for diversity.

DYLEP is a program funded by the Stevens Initiative, a partnership aimed to increase exchanges between youth in the U.S. and the Middle East. Selected students will participate in DYLEP completely free of charge. Since its inception in 2016, DYLEP has reached more than 300 youth from all over the world.

Since DYLEP is an online program, students can participate from anywhere and structure the activities around their own schedules. We encourage people with disabilities and other diverse backgrounds to apply.

DYLEP is sponsored the Stevens Initiative, which is funded by the U.S. Department of State, the Bezos Family Foundation, among other donors.
