Youth Programs

AIEC’s Youth Programs work to help students understand the democratic process and gain the skills necessary to become tomorrow’s leaders – without relying exclusively on textbooks and lectures. Our Youth Programs allow today’s teenagers to experience government first-hand by visiting the nations’ capital, meeting their Representatives and Senators, and engaging in interactive discussions.

By educating students and enhancing their self-worth, AIEC hopes to promote and inspire responsible and informed participation in the democratic process.
