African Leadership Foundation
- New York
African Leadership Foundation is a US-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports transformative change in Africa by developing and connecting the continent's next generation of leaders. The organization raises awareness, funds, and support for the Johannesburg-based African Leadership Academy, a two-year intensive program of intellectual growth and hands-on leadership development for 15-19 year-old students from all 54 African nations (www.africanleadershipacademy.org).
Each year, African Leadership Academy draws the most outstanding students from across Africa to its campus in South Africa. There, they build a powerful intellectual foundation and develop their leadership capacity through ALA’s unique curriculum in Entrepreneurial Leadership. ALA then works with these young leaders throughout their lives as they enable lasting positive change on the African continent.
