ALA Gives Back with GSP 2017

Hey Alums! This year for #ALAGivesBack, we’re trying something a little different. We know that you want to contribute, but cash is tight! So, this season, you can earn money donated in your name by recommending members of your new, post-ALA networks for the Global Scholars Program. The tuition from each registered GSP participant contributes to ALA’s overall sustainability, so your efforts can make a big impact!

Available Prizes

  • $5 donations – awarded to the first 150 people who share the link on their personal Facebook page and send 10 direct messages to people outside of the ALA network. Direct messages can be sent via Gmail or Facebook
  • Additional $5 donations – awarded to the first 50 people whose shares lead at least 5 people to download the GSP brochure.
  • $100 donations – awarded to any alumni whose sharing results in an applied, accepted, and enrolled GSP participant.

Please only target those outside of the ALA network who would be able to send participants or participate themselves. Shares to and downloads from other alumni will not count towards prizes. We will be using a referrals system to track your progress


We are looking for young leaders aged 14 - 19 years with a passion for exploration, a willingness to strengthen their leadership and design-thinking skills, and the ability to travel to Johannesburg during July or August. Click "Join Our Campaign" button to become an official campaign participant. Then, share the link you receive as widely as possible.

GSP provides a transformative leadership development experience for participants, but the program fees also support ALA's overall mission by contributing to the financial assistance fund for our Two Year Diploma Program, which seeks to develop the next generation of African leaders.
