What is the Bulgarian Young Leaders Program?
The Bulgarian Young Leaders Program (BYLP), which is sponsored by the America for Bulgaria Foundation (ABF), aims to identify Bulgarian students of exceptional caliber as well as promising civil service professionals and educators and provide them with unique entrepreneurship and leadership training in the United States. ABF believes that the Bulgarian Young Leaders Program will not only train individuals to become catalysts for Bulgaria’s continuous civil society development and economic growth, but that it will also increase mutual understanding and ongoing collaboration between young and aspiring leaders in the U.S. and Bulgaria.
The BYLP incorporates four major components:
1. Summer Entrepreneurship Program (SEP)
2. Principals' Training Program (PTP)
3. Junior Justice Professionals Training Program (JJPTP)
4. Educational Leaders' Training Program (ELTP)
