The U.S. Embassy Announces the 2017 Cohort of the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows Program for the year 2017.

Port au Prince: The U.S. Embassy is proud to announce the 2017 cohort from Haiti for the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows Program. The YLAI program supports the United States’ commitment to increase trade and investment in the region and, in the words of Vice President Mike Pence, “bring even more of our business culture of entrepreneurship and innovation all across the Caribbean and Latin America so that Haiti’s prosperity and our prosperity will continue to expand together.” The five-week program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, will bring 250 young leaders from 36 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to the United States to augment their business or social venture plans, learn from U.S. counterparts, and share best practices.

This year we are pleased to announce that six young leaders from Haiti have been accepted out of more than 3,000 applications to the YLAI Professional Fellows Program. The fellow’s field of interests ranges from public dentistry to youth unemployment, expanding the bakery business to establishing a start-up incubator for entrepreneurs. This year’s Haitian fellows are:
