Built around ALA’s unique Entrepreneurial Leadership and African Studies curriculum, GSP prepares future leaders to explore their potential to create widespread change in Africa and around the world. Participants practice leadership by working in social ventures in the Johannesburg community, learn from chats with prominent entrepreneurial leaders in South Africa, build a global network with other young leaders from around the world, and discover the history, beauty, and diversity of Africa.
