FY2022 Jovenes en Accion Program

The Office of Citizen Exchanges, Youth Programs Division of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition for the FY 2022 Jóvenes en Acción (Youth in Action) Program, an exchange program for Mexican high school students.

U. S. public and private non-profit

organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to administer a program to provide the participants with a four-week summer exchange program in the United States focused on civic education, community service, and youth leadership development, and to support the implementation of service projects in their home communities.

The Jóvenes en Acción program directly supports the U. S. foreign policy goal of youth empowerment and development by equipping exchange participants with the knowledge and skills to become active and responsible members of their communities.

The program will build mutual understanding, tolerance, and respect through shared culture and values; empower participants to be actively engaged in addressing issues of concern in their schools and communities upon their return home; and foster relationships among youth from different ethnic, religious, and national groups.

This program will be funded as a joint initiative between the U. S. Department of State, the Mexican government, and the private sector.
