Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program
The Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, brings mixed-country delegations of high school students and adult mentors to the United States to explore themes such as entrepreneurship, the environment and public health. This youth exchange program for Africa is designed to promote high-quality leadership, civic responsibility and civic engagement through entrepreneurship among future leaders. The program presents the principles of democracy and civil society as practiced in the United States and provides participants with training that allows them to develop their leadership and civic engagement skills. The participants are chosen based on demonstration of leadership skills, interest in community engagement and open-mindedness. This program furthers FHI 360’s commitment to working with youth and promoting youth leadership through exchanges.
