Youth Advisory Board assembled


The Youth Advisory Board for the Ford Foundation-funded Pan African leadership project will play a critical role in the governance of the project. The board has been intentionally constituted up front at the start of the grant project to provide strategic inputs and provide overall guidance of the project and its implementation.

Two ex officio members will sit on the board in addition to the eminent young Africans on the board. The first is a member of AFLI - which is the grant recipient. The second is a member of the African Union Commission’s Youth Division.

In addition to the Board, the leadership project is assembling partners with which to work on an online platform to build a curated community of practice. Various African youth initiatives will be set up for collaboration to be explored, and experiences and best practices documented and shared. This will facilitate learningacross and between progammes. The curators will play a key role in steering these efforts and announcements will be made regarding this in coming weeks.
