Young Leaders Alumni Council and Foundation

Two independent alumni organizations support the American Swiss Foundation in its outreach to past participants of the Young Leaders Conference: the Young Leaders Alumni Council in the U.S. and the Young Leaders Alumni Foundation in Switzerland. Working closely together, they host and support educational and cultural events in both countries to give alumni an opportunity to stay up-to-date and learn more about the important Swiss-American relationship. All events are open to the public.

Every three years, beginning in 2012, the alumni organizations host "Building Bridges," a three-day leadership conference and alumni reunion. It brings together Young Leaders Conference alumni and senior leaders from the U.S. and Switzerland for intensive discussions of the most pressing issues of the day.
