Welcome to AAG

Dear Friend,
American Alliance forGeorgia, “AAG”, fundamentally believes that the country of Georgia’s future can be peaceful and prosperous. A core component in this belief is the development of Georgia’s future leaders. AAG’s mission is to identify these future leaders, and provide them with an opportunity to begin to develop and hone their inherent potential. Central to this mission is providing talented Georgian university aged students with an immersive experience in the United States which will expose them to the concepts of democracy and leadership, as the key to ensuring that Georgia continues to thrive on a global scale, as well as ensuring a prosperous future.
The ARG Leadership Academy will provide selected Georgian university aged students with the opportunity to explore our nation’s capital as an insider. Students will learn directly from skilled professionals at the highest levels of government, advocacy, and public relations. Visits to government agencies, international organizations, and top advocacy groups will bring students face-to-face with Washington’s power players. Students will participate in workshops and attend presentations on selected topics facilitated by relevant thought leaders, and will walk away from this comprehensive experience with a better understanding of the intricacies of high level government, business, and global leadership The ARG Leadership Academy will also provide students with a number of networking opportunities to drive future career opportunities.

Our Purpose

Alliance for Georgia plans to organize leadership academy to expose talented Georgian university aged students

to the concepts of democracy and leadership in the United States.
