Young African Fellows Farewell Reception

Join UNA-NCA's African Affairs Committee in a farewell reception for the 2015 YALI Fellows.

The Millennial generation is forging a distinctive path into adulthood and is constantly seeking tools to better engage with their fellow peers on the development process that will impact their lives. It is essential that we recognize youth leadership and participation for an inclusive growth and achievement of sustainable development goals thereby ensuring the needs and values of the young generation are included in the post-2015 era.

The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), founded in 2010 by President Obama, celebrates young people who demonstrate leadership, and looks to them for inclusion in development planning for the future. Its flagship program, the Mandela Washington Fellowship is an investment in youth leaders from across the African continent and an effort to support them through leadership training and mentoring programs at universities and colleges, coupled with professional internships. Upon returning to their home countries, YALI Fellows have continued access to opportunities for professional development, mentoring, networking and further training.

Please join us in congratulating the 2015 Fellows on the successful completion of the program. The event will include a discussion on the roles African youth leaders have in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals on a local and global level.
