We believe educated, empowered, and community driven young people are the best vehicles for social change. To solve many of the problems Africa faces, the continent needs talented young people with formidable character, ethics, leadership skills, and a deep passion for their communities.
FIVE WAYS WE LAUNCH THE NEXT GENERATION OF AFRICAN LEADERS
1. University Leadership Program
In many communities in Africa, brilliant young students are thriving in high school and excited about their future. Unfortunately, without a pathway to university, their hard work and achievement is often squandered.
Our university leadership program couples a social impact loan with leadership training, professional development opportunities, 200 hours of community service, and a supportive family of friends.
2. Accelerate Academy Entrepreneurship Fellowship
3. American Internships for African Students
4. Women’s Empowerment Program
The education and empowerment of women is the secret weapon to fighting poverty. Today, young women in Africa are poised to lead the continent to a new era of peace and prosperity.
Through access to university, leadership trainings and entrepreneurship opportunities, we empower Africa’s brightest young women to lead their countries.
