Youth from these countries converge and interact over a four-week residential program that boosts courage, innovation, Pan Africanism, diversity & social inclusion, change making and design thinking. The centers have empowered over 13,000 alumni across 48 countries.
YALI AFRICA signifies the next chapter in the evolution of the 4 Regional Leadership Centers and seeks to harness their collective power to develop the Centers into long-standing, sustainable institutions.
The establishment of YALI Africa is central to this success. YALI Africa, as a legal entity, will connect the four independent RLCs and serve as a secretariat – a central point for setting and maintaining the YALI RLCs’ mandate and unified vision, public presentation and branding, setting curriculum standards, and mobilizing resources jointly.
