The African Young Leaders Fellowship Programme (an initiative of The YGL Network) in collaboration with our European partners is geared towards preparing future world leaders for their roles on the global stage to advance peace, social economic development, provides solutions to societal challenges, raise innovative young leaders, and help fight corruption.
The African Young Leaders Fellowship Programme is aimed at providing participants/delegates with career-based learning experiences that involves a real-world work environment experience.
The African Young Leaders Fellowship Programme provide participants with intensive training, mentorship, networking sessions, series of workshops, interactive simulations, group projects, study tour, internships, career coaching advice and seminar series with invited Guests, who share their practical experiences in each focus areas and want to help the next generation of young aspiring leaders succeed.
This productive scheme/initiative will equip delegates in their specialised chosen areas at the end of the programme.
Diplomacy, politics, leadership & entrepreneurship mentoring usually involves two people- a mentor who is more experienced in an area of politics, leadership or entrepreneurship who mentors a mentee who is typically but not always a young leaders or young entrepreneur but an aspiring leader or entrepreneur.
Mentors provide information, ideas about their roles or business and support for mentees but the exact nature of support can vary.
Participants as part of this programme will be assigned or develop a LIVE project in their focus areas which will mark the end of their training.
Young Global Leaders Network will also organize study tours for participants supported by our partners in Asia and Europe. We believe in productive exchange and networking programmes.
