American Council of Young Political Leaders Partnership

Women In Government is pleased to announce that we are a nominating partner with the American Council for Young Political Leaders (ACYPL). Our Board of Directors recently approved this new partnership and we are excited to be able to send some of our members abroad to take part in this amazing international policy experience.

ACYPL’s mission is to give the next generation of elected officials and policy experts a global perspective on the most pressing issues facing our world. ACYPL has sent policy makers to over 127 countries across the globe, promoting engagement in civil dialogue and civic discourse.

WIG Board of Director Representative Geran Tarr (AK) participated on an ACYPL exchange to Thailand in 2008, and it was one the best experiences of her life, "now more than ever, we must focus on building relationships and peaceful democracy."
