PAO Jason Seymour described everything they needed to know about the dynamic, multi-week program that focuses on developing impactful leadership skills. In addition, the majority of participants had never traveled to the United States and this adventure will be their first opportunity. From California to Iowa to Oklahoma to New York, these young African leaders are in for a special treat in which they will become acquainted with the United States!
