The Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, brings together mixed-country delegations of students and adult
mentors on a single platform to explore themes that range across entrepreneurship, environment, and public health. The youth exchange program was designed to promote high-quality leadership, civic responsibility, and engagement through entrepreneurship among future leaders.
The program presents the principles of democracy and civil society while providing participants with the right exposure that allows them to develop their leadership and civic engagement skills. The Pan African Youth Leadership Foundation is also the body responsible for the West African Youth Award. The core mission of the Foundation is to create a hub for interaction and idea dissemination amongst the youth in the region. This year the foundation paved way for the Second Edition of the Global Leaders’ Summit Dubai 2022 that hosted 50 most influential leaders from around the globe. The theme of the event was ‘Breaking Down Barriers’ – a need-of-the-hour discussion for the students that are set out to become future leaders, entrepreneurs, and change-makers.
