The value of #InternationalExchangeAlumni engagement was evident today as 30 U.S. - NZ Youth Councilors convened in Auckland for our national ‘Connecting Young Leaders with Alumni’ conference. Hosted in partnership with The American Chamber of Commerce the conference showcased alumni of International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), Fulbright New Zealand, U.S. Department of State Global Sports Mentoring Program, across an eclectic selection of themes including; Foreign Policy, Women in Leadership, U.S. - NZ Business Landscapes/Eco-systems, and Social/Economic Development in the Pacific. The sharing of ideas is a core strength of exchange programs, and our alumni were enthusiastic to share their experiences with the next generation of leaders.

Day 2 of the ‘Connecting Young Leaders’ conference. First stop Grid AKL – home to one of Auckland’s leading innovation hubs, which creates pathways for innovative individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to connect.
After enjoying the CBD’s range of cuisine for lunch, the group met with new Consul General, Katelyn Choe, at the U.S. Consulate in Auckland. Katelyn enthusiastically shared her wealth of experience in the Foreign Service, and offered an insight into her fascinating career journey.

“The USA has lost a hero, leader, and one of the most principled people I’ve ever known. In war and peace, John McCain dedicated himself to service & sacrifice for our country. He was my friend and mentor, and I will never forget him. Rest In Peace, and thank you. 🇺🇸” - U.S. Ambassador Scott Brown.
