ALA - Your Gatewat to International Careers

We often say that graduating from ALA is just the beginning of your journey with us. This is why we have a department called Lifelong Engagement (rather than Alumni Affairs). If you are accepted into African Leadership Academy, it really is a partnership for life where we will jointly seek the best opportunities for you to have an impact on Africa’s future.

If you’re a prospective student, you have taken a powerful step toward authoring your future as a young African change-maker!  If you are a parent or mentor, you have started a conversation with us that could connect a talented young African to an opportunity that could transform their life and allow them to truly realize their potential.

Our mission is to identify, develop and connect the next generation of African Leaders, and each year we comb the continent in search of applicants who exhibit entrepreneurial spirit; a commitment to service; academic excellence; strong, ethical leadership potential; and above all a passion for Africa.

ALA’s Africa Careers Network partners with students to help them in pursuing internships and careers on the continent. We have relationships with over 600 employers who have come to know the caliber of our graduates and provide us with hundreds of internship and job opportunities every year.
