YALI Transformational Learning Training


The YALI Regional Leadership Center East Africa is part of President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative and one of the four regional hubs that provides transformational learning and improved leadership skills to young Africans. 

Located at Kenyatta University, in Nairobi, Kenya, the Center is more than a location for learning or a venue for collaboration; it is a philosophy, a forward-leaning culture of diversity that invites dreaming and thinking differently to define and realize one's potential. The program is inclusive, embracing future leaders regardless of religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, or disability. Selected participants aged 18-35 years, drawn from 14 countries in East and Central Africa, engage in innovative leadership training across three tracks of study of (1) Business and Entrepreneurship, (2) Civic Leadership, and (3) Public Management.

The participants immerse themselves in a 12-week course of study, three weeks of residential learning on-site at the Center in Nairobi; eight weeks of virtual distance learning via technology from their home countries; and a final week on-site at the Center in Nairobi for wrap-up and presentations. The Center benefits the participants by linking them to a network of other young leaders from East Africa empowering them by enhancing their skills and confidence to lead; providing guidance from some of the best business and leadership minds in Africa; and opportunities for internships, among other benefits.


Applications for Cohort 14 & 15 are now open and the deadline is September 12th at 5:00pm East African Time. The dates for the Cohorts are listed below: -

• Cohort 14            -           January 16, 2017 to April 7, 2017
