Washington, DC

The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) that empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. In 2022, the Fellowship will provide approximately 700 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. college or university with support for professional development after they return home. At the conclusion of the Leadership Institutes, all Fellows will participate in the annual Mandela Washington Fellowship Summit, where Fellows, guests from U.S. Government agencies, and representatives of businesses and organizations with interest in Africa engage in high-level sessions and workshops. This culminating event is an opportunity for Fellows to build the foundations of long-term partnerships with U.S. professionals and each other and make plans to continue their leadership journey after their Fellowship.
