The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders began in 2014 and is the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). It empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training and networking. The program focusses on three tracks, namely civic engagement, public management and business and entrepreneurship.
Applications are open until 9 October and those that are selected will depart for the U.S. in June 2020.
