YELP Class of 2019 Seminar 1An Update
In March we conducted our first seminar with the 2019 class of the Young and Emerging Leaders Project. The 2019 class is our third cohort of the project and consists of fellows from 8 African countries. We are pleased to see the project grow into the Pan-African initiative that we aspire for it to become. The institute is looking forward to hosting the fellows for their second seminar in August, which will be held at Victoria Forest Resort, Kalangala
Class of 2017 YELP Experience
Leadership is critical to the fortunes of any country because it not only shapes culture, but also determines the allocation of scarce resources, that in the end have serious implications on the collective fortunes of a people. My application for the YELP Fellowship was motivated by a desire to learn on how I can be a better leader in my own society. As an educated young woman, I realize I occupy a privileged position in society, which I need to recognize and meaningfully utilize by positively impacting others.
