2016 YLAI Fellows enjoy Rocky Mountain National Park!

Join the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows, their Fellowship Hosts, and WorldDenver as we reflect on the YLAI Fellows' time in Denver. This celebration will be the Fellows' send-off before they head to the YLAI Summit in Washington, DC. 

Additionally, Threads Worldwide, one of our 2017 YLAI Fellowship Hosts, creates life-changing work for women around the world. They will have gorgeous handmade jewelry and accessories from developing countries around the world including Guatemala, Kenya, Ethiopia and more for sale on Friday.

Ximena Gonzalez, YLAI Fellow from Peru, will display her products for Nomades Peru, a social startup that aims to reevaluate the current business model of handcrafts by designing and commercializing high-end fashion accessories and home decoration with a rich and powerful artisan story, while empowering artisans with professional development and access to new markets.

Randy McLaren, YLAI Fellow from Jamaica, will display his Bresheh backpacks. Bresheh's goals is to combine Jamaican culture with the energy of people across the world to provide a range of high-quality, locally manufactured products, beginning with bags.
