YOUNG AFRICAN LEADERS INITIATIVE (YALI)

The President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is a signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. Nearly 1 in 3 Africans are between the ages of 10 and 24, and approximately 60 percent of Africa’s total population is below the age of 35. President Obama launched YALI in 2010 to support young African leaders as they spur/spark growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across Africa. Through YALI, the United States is investing in an emerging generation of African leaders by committing significant resources to enhance leadership skills, bolster entrepreneurship, and connect young African leaders with one another, the United States, and innovative leaders in the private, civic, and public sectors. YALI programs such as the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, YALI Regional Leadership Centres, and the YALI Network provide interconnected avenues of opportunity for young Africans to grow their leadership skills.
