The Mandela Washington Fellowship, the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, professional opportunities, and local community engagement. YALI was created in 2010 and supports young Africans as they spur economic growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across Africa. Since 2014, the U.S. Department of State has supported nearly 5,800 Mandela Washington Fellows from across Sub-Saharan Africa to develop their leadership skills and foster connections and collaboration with U.S. professionals. Fellows hosted by the Presidential Precinct in 2023 will be part of a group of 700 Mandela Washington Fellows hosted at 28 educational institutions across the United States.
Summer 2023 will mark the Presidential Precinct’s ninth year as an Institute Partner and our 200th Fellow hosted through the Mandela Washington Fellowship!
The fellows will start their program with three weeks at William & Mary, attending sessions on international fund-raising and grant writing, leadership, the impact of holding public office and building blocks of communicating, among other subjects.
