Africa Careers Network (ACN)

Africa Careers Network (ACN) is a platform that connects young African talent from ALA and the MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program to high-impact internship and job opportunities across the African continent.

ACN seeks to build relationships with a wide range of organizations that offer meaningful professional development opportunities to its young leaders in the form of internships and careers. ACN users form a community of talented young people who are committed to contributing to the overall development of the African continent.

Our young leaders attend some of the most prestigious universities in and outside of the continent. Placements include Yale, Colombia, Stanford, Duke, Asheshi University, Harvard, and University of Cape Town.

ACN provides experience in a broad range of career areas, including sales & marketing, finance, engineering, operations, health, education and scientific research.  Young leaders in our network have access to on-going career guidance including an online Learning Centre.

With nearly 700 young leaders from over 45 countries, ACN is a hub of Africa’s top talent. Many of our partner organisations appreciate the opportunity to test out our young leaders with a view to possible future employment.
