The Azerbaijani Youth Environmental Program (AYEP) is an exchange program funded by the U.S. Embassy in Baku.

AYEP will provide Azerbaijani youth with the opportunity to strengthen their leadership skills and engage in community service through an environmental lens during a 12 day exchange in the United States.

AYEP will provide participants with hands-on learning, interactive group and peer-to-peer activities, site visits, and community service experience highlighting community involvement to develop their leadership abilities.

Through the AYEP program, participants will develop an understanding of how they can become active members of society and more involved in their communities through an environmental approach.The goals of AYEP are to: develop participant understanding of community engagement as practiced in the U.S.; build critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills; improve understanding of social, environmental, and economic components of environmental sustainability; and foster cross-cultural communication and understanding between U.S. and Azerbaijani citizens.

AYEP is scheduled to take place in Massachusetts and Vermont from July 2 - July 13, 2022.
