YALI AFRICA signifies the next chapter in the evolution of the 4 Regional Leadership Centers and seeks to harness their collective power to develop the Centers into long-standing, sustainable institutions.
The establishment of YALI Africa is central to this success. YALI Africa, as a legal entity, will connect the four independent RLCs and serve as a secretariat – a central point for setting and maintaining the YALI RLCs’ mandate and unified vision, public presentation and branding, setting curriculum standards, and mobilizing resources jointly.
YALI Africa will also enable the Centers to breakdown regional boundaries and leverage their vast youth network for sustainability.
At scale, YALI has the potential to create high-impact, long-lasting change in communities throughout the continent.
