US-Mongolia Emerging Youth Leaders Program

iEARN is excited to welcome a group of 16 students and educators from Mongolia as part of the US-Mongolia Emerging Youth Leaders Program!

The US-Mongolia Emerging Youth Leaders Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, managed by iEARN, and administered by United Planet and the Mongolian Educational Alliance. The exciting program facilitates a physical exchange between student and educators from Boston Public Schools and Mongolian public schools. A group of 15 Boston students and educators travelled to Mongolia this summer, and this week a group of 16 Mongolian students and educators will complete the exchange by traveling in Boston and Washington DC for three weeks. The Mongolian participants arrived in Boston on Saturday and have already had orientation and their first night with their host families. They are very excited to be here!
