Advisory Families

In an effort to provide as much varied and valuable support to each individual student, the Academy assigns each student to an Advisory Family. Each Advisory Family has six (on average) students, and two ‘parents’. Advisors act as campus parents for ALA’s young leaders, providing support for that student on emotional, social, psychological and academic questions, and serve as a direct contact for the parents or guardians.

At ALA, we believe that it takes several years to become a transformative leader, and we continuously engage with and support our students as they start careers, launch ventures, and pursue their goals beyond the Academy walls. Africa Careers Network (ACN) connects our students to career and internship opportunities across Africa.
