About YELP

The Young and Emerging Leaders Project (YELP) is an initiative of the LéO Africa Institute, which has been ongoing for 2 years, that annually inducts 20-30 outstanding thought leaders into a fellowship program designed to train and orient values of self-advancement, integrity, social responsibility, and socioeconomic transformation.

The fellowship represents our signature leadership development project which aims at nurturing a new breed of socially responsible leaders in Africa.
