YOUNG AFRICAN LEADERS INITIATIVE (YALI)

ABOUT YALI
 
As former President of the United States, Barack Obama said :
"You will not only be making a difference in your own countries but also be the foundation of a new generation of global leadership’’.
It promotes three models designed to identify and empower young leaders: The YALI Mandela Washington Fellowship, YALI Network and now the establishment of 4 Regional Leadership Centers operating across Africa
The wide array of partners from diverse institutions including government, academia, the private sector, and civil society, truly reflects the collaboration necessary to make this Center possible.

Without partners such as USAID, MasterCard Foundation, GIMPA, Africa 2.0 and the Private Enterprise Federation, Microsoft, Webster University, Ecobank. Protea Hotel, TEDx Accra, Arik Air, President Obama’s vision could not have been realised."
 
THE PURPOSE
YALI RLC West Africa, Accra was developed in order to provide a platform for the next potential generation of Africa’s leaders to come together and prepare for future endeavours that will effect change and ultimately transform the continent.

OUR IMPACT
The program in partnership with GIMPA has since August 2015 executed three cohorts of leadership training for participants drawn across Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, Togo, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Burkina Faso.

So far, 405 participants have been trained in Entrepreneurship, Public Sector Management and Civil Society Leadership.

250 Participants on the Emerging Leaders Online Program and by the end of 2016, the Center would have trained at least 755 young West Africans who have demonstrated Leadership potential.

The RLC West Africa continues to grow covering more areas such as Cameroon as of 2016 for cohort 4 including 122 participants and for the first time, 22 Cameroonians.
