The Transatlantic Leadership Program (TLP) is designed to identify the brightest young people from the European Union and United States willing to participate in developing strong Transatlantic relations. The program allows young leaders from both sides of the Atlantic to undergo a 3 months working experience at United States Congress for European young leaders, and at the European Parliament for American participants.
Although the United States and the European Union remain the closest allies, recent development in international politics particularly require us to create a new vision for transatlantic relations. Having this in mind, the United States and European Union will need to prepare a new generation of social and political leaders, able to understand the importance of transatlantic relations, that are empowered to search for common strategies in response to a changing world. YouthProAktiv focused in promoting proactivity, entrepreneurship as well as greater involvement of young people in economic, political and social life of their communities, aims to establish a new platform of cooperation for Transatlantic partners that will give young people an opportunity to gain a first-hand experience of policy-making both at American and European level.
