PAYLP is an intensive academic program offered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA)’s Youth Programs Division. Through three-week intensive exchanges in the United States, participants engage in workshops on leadership and service, community site visits related to the program themes and sub-themes, interactive training in conflict resolution, presentations, visits to high schools, local cultural activities, and homestays with local American families.

A key component of the program is for participants to develop follow-on community-based projects in their home communities to effect positive change after their return home. Once selected, the Department of State will cover all costs related to the program including travel, accommodation and health benefits for all participants.
