Sobre Nós

Birthright AFRICA is committed to providing a free educational trip to Africa for every youth and young adults of African descent ages 13 – 30 in the United States. Formed in 2015, As the umbrella organization for the movement, Birthright AFRICA supports education and corporate partners to develop heritage-based leadership programs that inspire Scholars to draw pride, confidence, and creativity from exploration of their cultural roots and legacy of innovation in the U.S. and Africa. To date, 61 Scholars have received their life-changing birthright experience in collaboration with 6 Education Partners since the 2017 pilot program with the City University of New York and traveled to Ghana and South Africa. Over 23,000 young people of African descent are registered as Birthright Scholars with access to virtual programs to explore their ancestral roots and legacy while we await to travel safely. Only 2% of US managers, leaders, and entrepreneurs are of African descent, 6% of college students that study abroad are black and only 4% travel to Africa. To address this gap in education, diversity and talent in collaboration with our partners, Birthright AFRICA is creating the next generation of global leaders and entrepreneurs that are proud of their African heritage, confident in their innovative aspirations and connected to the African continent. After completing the program, 100% of Birthright Alumni say it was life-changing and 98% say they have more resources, clarity, and belief in themselves to pursue their career and life goals. Many Birthright Alumni have now graduated college, entered their careers, and are on the path to fulfilling their leadership and entrepreneurship potential as envisioned by diversity and inclusion efforts in our society. We are committed to ensuring the Birthright AFRICA experience is a part of our culture to transform the future of the diaspora for generations to come.
