Transforming students into tomorrow’s leaders
The Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) was launched in 2013 by the U.S. government with the aim of enhancing leadership and networking in Southeast Asia, focusing on youth leadership development and stronger U.S.-ASEAN ties. A key component to this mission is the YSEALI Academy at Fulbright, which was launched in 2020 in collaboration with Fulbright University Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. Offering flagship executive education seminars on technology, public policy, and entrepreneurship, the Academy promotes leadership competencies for the future leaders of Southeast Asia. Over the next five years, it will conduct 16-20 executive education seminars, led by regional and U.S. experts, to address regional leadership challenges, foster intercultural and professional relationships, and to equip participants with future-ready skills that will boost their careers.
