President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI)
The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) was launched by President of the United States Barack Obama as a signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. The need to invest in grooming strong, results-oriented leaders comes out of the statistics: nearly 1 in 3 Africans are between the ages of 10 and 24, and approximately 60% of Africa’s total population is below the age of 35. Who will empower and lead these young Africans? Who will shape the future of business and entrepreneurship, civil society leadership, and public sector management? In order to answer these questions, YALI promotes three models designed to identify and empower young leaders: the YALI Mandela Washington Fellowship, YALI Network and now the establishment of Regional Leadership Centres across Africa.
Supporting this progress, the YALI Regional Leadership Centre (RLC) West Africa, Accra, a part of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), will offer an innovative and game changing leadership training program in Africa on the following courses:
1. Business And Entrepreneurship
2. Civil Society Leadership
3. Public Sector Management
The program will be hosted by the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) with seasoned lecturers from USA and across Africa.
