Celebrating the Young African Leaders Initiative
10th Anniversary Virtual Summit, May 24-28, 2021
“Ten Plus Ten: YALI and the United States, Look Back, and Ahead, Together”
Established in 2010, the Young Africa Leaders Initiative (YALI) is the U.S. government’s signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. Over the past decade, YALI has grown to include the Mandela Washington Fellowship exchange program, four Regional Leadership Centers (RLCs) in Africa, and an extensive digital community called the YALI Network. These programs aim to strengthen democratic institutions and good governance, spur economic growth and prosperity, and foster peace and security in Africa. As of 2021, YALI has engaged more than 700,000 people in over 40 African countries.
Join us and thousands of participants from across Africa and the United States as we celebrate this incredible 10th-anniversary milestone. The Summit will provide 5 days of policy discussions, professional development workshops, entertainment, and networking opportunities and will feature notable speakers and YALI alumni from the business, civic, and public management sectors
