African Leadership Academy seeks to develop Africa’s next generation of young leaders to transform the continent. To achieve our mission, we seek to identify youth who show the spark of initiative; who see what can be and strive to make it so. These young leaders are immersed in an intensive program of intellectual growth and hands-on leadership development. We connect them to a powerful network along their path to transformative impact in Africa.
African Leadership Academy’s new #DiscoverALA series offers both online and in-person opportunities to learn more about the Two Year Diploma Program. This is a great chance to meet our recruitment team as well as alumni and current students.
How we Develop the Next
Generation of African Leaders
We believe that Africa’s greatest need is ethical and entrepreneurial leadership. Too often, we only invest in addressing the symptoms of poor leadership in Africa: we give blankets, food, and medicine to those impacted by war, poverty, and famine. But these efforts will never stop unless we develop leaders who prevent wars, entrepreneurs who create
jobs, and innovators that develop lasting solutions to the root causes of Africa’s problems.
African Leadership Academy was founded with five beliefs that drove the design of our model. We believe that to create lasting change in Africa, it is necessary to make investments to treat causes and not just the symptoms of problems – and that the greatest root cause of Africa’s challenges is an undersupply of leadership.
We believe that individual leaders can unleash massive positive change in society, and that many great leaders start on their journey at a young age. We believe that a pan-African approach is required to catalyze growth and development in Africa, and that Africa requires entrepreneurial leaders across all sectors who will throw off the constraints of existing institutions
to enable lasting transformation.
OUR CURRICULUM-DIPLOMA PROGRAM
The two-year pre-university Diploma Program at ALA fosters a tight-knit, pan-African community and empowers
each student with the skills and mindsets required for transformative leadership. Our curriculum goes well
beyond academic theory and examined content, we aim to foster critical inquiry, entrepreneurial leadership,
and cross-cultural competence. We seek to develop well-rounded young people who are equipped to navigate
and excel in an increasingly complex world.
