Leadership Africa USA United States


Leadership Africa USA was officially incorporated as a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c) (3) non-governmental organization in 2006 to tackle the broad consequences of alienation among African youth. Since 1992, Leadership Africa USA’s organizers have been working with local partners in Africa to re-establish a culture of learning and promote access to quality education for a generation of African students. While these education initiatives are ongoing, Leadership Africa USA’s primary focus is to develop leadership skills training programs for Africa’s youth in conflict-affected countries. Leadership Africa USA has a proven track record with successful leadership development programs in South Africa, Nigeria, Liberia, Kenya, Senegal and the United States.
