October 8-November 7, 2016
This US State Department-sponsored Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) program will bring 14 English-speaking entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Caribbean.
These young leaders will take part in 4-week Fellowship experiences with mentors from local companies and organizations and participate in a wide range of professional development, cultural, and social activities.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
