By BBN Staff: Breaking Belize News’ journalist, Zoila Gonzalez, has been nominated for the United States Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).
Annually, IVLP candidates are selected solely by U.S. embassy personnel in each country.
The IVLP is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program.
Through short-term visits to the United States, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience this country firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts.
Professionals selected participate in a three week training in their respective field of work or study.
The cultural and professional exchange program was founded in 1940 and sees over four thousand participants benefiting from the training and cultural exchange programs in the U.S.
It is administered as a partnership between the U.S. Department of State, World Learning, private sector partners in Washington D.C. and cities around the U.S.
BBN thanks the United States Embassy in Belize for this invaluable opportunity, which will undoubtedly contribute to the proficient and ever changing digital evolution in Belize.
