The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is the U.S. government’s signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. Nearly 1 in 3 Africans are between the ages of 10 and 24, and approximately 60 percent of Africa’s total population is below the age of 35. YALI was
launched in 2010 to support young African leaders as they spur growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across sub-Saharan Africa.

The YALI Network is an online extension of YALI that provides members with invaluable opportunities to connect with other leaders in their community and to learn from experts in their field. Explore this page to learn more about the YALI Network and all the ways you can be involved
