African Leadership Academy

African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to transform Africa by developing a powerful network of young African leaders who will work together to address Africa’s greatest challenges, achieve extraordinary social impact, and accelerate the continent’s growth trajectory.

When ALA was founded in 2008, we were driven by what we saw as the continent’s deepest need: a generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders with a genuine commitment to serving the continent.

We believe that by identifying high potential young leaders and equipping them with high impact skills and a strong ethical foundation, we will build a network of change agents who will create a peaceful and prosperous Africa.
