Join us March 4, 2021, at 8 am EST to learn more about how your business can benefit from UBL and YPIP programs and how you can contribute to solving Uzbekistan’s youth workforce development challenges and opportunities.
The Uzbekistan Business Leaders (UBL) Program and the Young Professional Internships Program (YPIP), both programs of the United States Embassy and administered by American Councils for International Education, offer Uzbek students and young business leaders the opportunity to improve their professional skills.
UBL brings business leaders from Uzbekistan, aged 22-40, to the U.S. for five-week individual fellowships with a U.S. business. YPIP provides Uzbek students the opportunity to gain real- world job experience and skills at selected business and STEM companies through a U.S.-style summer internship. UBL and YPIP assist U.S. and Uzbek SMEs in expanding theirbusinesses globally and cultivating productive ties between U.S.
