They are made by hard effort.

The Youth Leadership through Sport Programs (YLSP) are short (about 10 days) exchange programs  for youth athletes (between 16-18) and adult coaches and is funded by the U.S. Department of State/Sports Diplomacy Division.

This unique program allows athletes from various countries around the world to visit the U.S. and American  athletes to visit their peers.  YLSP  is a highly   competitive program for those who demonstrate leadership in sports and in their communities. Please check here for participating countries. 

YLSP covers visa, travel, lodging, meals and emergency medical insurance for all selected finalists.
