About Plan País:
Plan País is a U.S.-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that connects, educates, and inspires the Venezuelan youth abroad through a platform for the exchange of knowledge, talent, and ideas. The organization was founded in 2010 at Yale University by a group of Venezuelan students who wanted to create a non-partisan forum in which to begin the construction of a long-term vision for the country. Since then, Plan País has become the premier platform for connecting and educating the Venezuelan youth abroad. Plan País has worked with student organizations in universities across the United States and abroad to organize conferences, regional events, workshops, virtual events, and multiple other types of meaningful gatherings that seek to educate, connect, link and provide a safe space for the exchange of ideas to the Venezuelan diaspora. Through these efforts, the organization has gathered over 2,500 Venezuelan students and professionals, as well as nearly 100 experts in fields that span economic, social, and institutional dimensions.
Plan País maintains a strictly non-partisan stance and actively seeks to integrate a wide range of ideologies and partisan affiliations, while remaining firmly committed to a democratic Venezuela that respects human rights, freedom of opportunity, and the rule of law. No other organization in the Americas or Europe has managed to create as robust a network of Venezuelan experts, non-profit organizations, and students and young professionals as the one that Plan País has constructed over the past decade.
