ACYPL and El Pomar Foundation: A Partnership for Almost 20 Years

Tags: American Council of Young Political Leaders

Two weeks ago, El Pomar Foundation Trustee and Senior Vice President/General Counsel Kyle Hybl returned from Sri Lanka and Nepal with an American Council of Young Political Leaders delegation.  Here in Colorado, El Pomar Foundation is currently hosting an ACYPL delegation from Romania and Croatia. Since 1993, El Pomar Foundation has hosted representatives from 52 countries.  The timing of the inbound/outbound delegations this month got us thinking about the impact this program has across all parts of the Foundation.


Hybl sums up his experience this way: “It gave us, as young political leaders from various parties, the opportunity to explore the social, economic, and political cultures of other countries while reflecting on our own country’s values.”

El Pomar will host another ACYPL delegation this year on July 14 -19 for a group of Indian and Pakistani political leaders.

Founded in 1966, ACYPL is a nonpartisan NGO internationally recognized as the pre-eminent catalyst for introducing rising political and policy professionals to international affairs and to each other. ACYPL’s mission is to promote mutual understanding, respect and friendship and cultivate long lasting relationships among next generation leaders.
