The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines announces an open competition for a cooperative agreement to develop and implement a five-day advanced leadership workshop (inclusive of arrival and departure days) in the Philippines for the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI), pending the availability of funds.
