In June 2014, 500 young African leaders demonstrating exemplary entrepreneurial and civic leadership arrived in Washington D.C. to participate in the first ever Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Washington Fellowship, a six-week academic and training program that seeks to prepare the next generation of African leaders for the 21st century, which will culminate with a three-day Presidential Summit for Washington Fellows on July 28. Join us for a conversation on the educational and entrepreneurial opportunities and challenges facing African youth, the value of higher education in development, and the vital role that the private sector can play in investing and strengthening education in Africa.
