This year, the Young Leaders Program will pay special attention to the development of France and Africa’s sports industries. Young leaders will be taken on tours, exposing them to grassroots cultural realities.
They will receive hands-on workshops dealing with media training, war school-type decision-making sequences, and much more. In addition, the young leaders will be trained in the art of diplomacy, under the leadership of leading PR agencies in France and Senegal, with a focus on resilience, 2021s rallying theme.
The 100 young leaders will take part in induction and wrap-up seminars, where they’ll have the opportunity to express their expectations. They will also meet with major stakeholders from corporations, SMEs, mid-level businesses, start-ups, and members of key associations and institutions.
What is the Young Leaders Program?
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 21-Mar-2021.
The French-African Foundation has launched a call for proposals for its Young Leaders Program 2021 to support the leadership of this new generation evolving on the Franco-African economic, political, social, and cultural scene.
This year, as a matter of urgency, the Foundation has expanded the capacity of the Young Leaders program three-fold, from 30 to 100 selectees. The selection process will be progressive, gender-free-based, and exhaustive to ensure a fair and equal playing field in identifying the 100 people who show the talent, energy, and values necessary to provide the answers for transformative change in the ecosystem.
