of Young Political Leaders
Due to limited travel, we will not be able to host a delegation at the beginning of 2021, but hope to host a delegation in the Fall of 2021.
Since 1993, El Pomar Foundation has partnered with the American Council of Young Political Leaders, a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3), to host young emerging political leaders from around the world.
To date, El Pomar Foundation has hosted more than 70 delegations from 40 countries, introducing nearly 500 international participants to Colorado state and local government, policymaking, and politics, as well as American culture.
