Launched in 2013, the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) consists of bright young leaders aged 18-35 years from the ASEAN countries. These young leaders have innovative ideas for tackling what they have identified as their generation’s greatest challenges in the ASEAN region: economic development, environmental protection, education, and civic engagement. The United States is partnering with these extraordinary young men and women by providing training and funding to up-and-coming social entrepreneurs.
