African Leadership Academy
African Leadership Academy seeks to transform Africa by developing a powerful network of young leaders who will work together to address Africa’s greatest challenges, achieve extraordinary social impact, and accelerate the continent’s growth trajectory.
The ALA Difference
We comb Africa for youth who show the spark of initiative; who see what can be and strive to make it so.
Young leaders complete an intensive program of intellectual growth and hands-on leadership development.
Young leaders are guided by a powerful network along their path to create transformative change in Africa.
Africa’s future will be shaped by young people who challenge themselves to think extraordinarily, break boundaries, and aspire toward great achievements.
The African Leadership Academy offers a suite of educational programmes that challenge and prepare young leaders between ages 15-22 for their future. Beyond the two-year diploma programme, we offer the Global Scholarship programme, Model African Union, and BUILD-in-a-BOX, each dedicated to expanding the intellectual growth and leadership development of Africa’s next leaders.
