Young Leaders League (Y2L)


Africa has no greater challenge than the need for leaders of integrity with the competencies to lead transformation of all areas of society. In addressing this need, it is critical that the youth of today are not left to grow with the same problems that have brought the continent to where it is today. 

To break this cycle of crises, it is important to help the young Africans, especially those of high school age, to understand how to lead change towards a better future.
