Side Events

In order to leverage the presence in Washington, D.C. of so many African leaders as well as the intense interest in U.S.-Africa ties that the Summit has engendered, a number of non government actors – the private sector and non-profit organizations — are organizing events along the margins to coincide with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

YALI / Young African Leaders Initiative / logo

 

President Obama launched the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) in 2010 to support young leaders with opportunities and resources. Through YALI, the United States is committing significant resources to enhance leadership skills, bolster entrepreneurship, and connect young African leaders with one another, with the United States, and with the American people. Investing in the next generation of African leaders is critical to ensuring the success of Africa’s democracies and its economies.

 

The Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is the exchange program of the President’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). This program brings over 500 young leaders to the United States each year, beginning in 2014, for leadership training, academic coursework, and mentoring. It also creates unique opportunities in Africa, through internships and follow-on opportunities, to put those new skills to practical use in propelling economic growth and prosperity and strengthening democratic institutions. To be part of the YALI Network, follow @YALINetwork on Twitter or find us on Facebook.

  1. From the bottom up, I simply do not know what to say about Rand Paul running or Steve King and his complete lack of common sense or compassion. Exactly how many times did he need to say, “lawless nation”? What a jackass.

    The climate change and wildfires, well most of us understand the relationship…most of us that is with good sense.

    A bomb threat on a plane? Really? Just how stupid do you have to be?

    Loved the ‘Holding Accountable’. I remain sad for him, the father and amazed by him.

    The President seems energized by the African Conference. I remain fascinated by it.

    You do a fabulous job of bringing it all together!

  2. […] TheObamaCrat Wake-Up Call™ For Tuesday The 5th Of August, 2014; The U.S. ★ Africa Leaders Summit…. […]

  3. I read and listen to everything going on with Republicans and in the rest of the world and there goes my mood. :)

    I am getting my mood back, though. I’ve just been invited to participate in a group to give info about child welfare public policy development and reform to policymakers. Key word: Policymakers.

    I said yes. There goes my extra time.

    How are you? You and I have both been busy and haven’t had time to chat. How are you feeling? When is this famous date going to happen? :)

    • Hello Sister, good to see you always. I am doing pretty good, trying to stay focused on politics and this upcoming election on “NO”vember 4th. This date is scheduled to happen as soon as I heal properly. How are you doing? When does the railing get installed?

      • The guy just measured for the railing. :D It could be any day now. My husband wanted only one side and I said it had to be both sides. He is so cheap it’s ridiculous. He blew up last night at our daughter and a male friend who is special needs. I’ve been in such a state over Ana’s kids that I almost hit him and I raked him over the coals. Ask me why he was so mad…. The door made a noise when the friend came in. He is nuts. And today he acts as if nothing happened.

        I hope people vote Republicans out all over. That’s what this country needs.

        Dating is good. I hope everything works out for you.

        I’m so far behind today… Got to run! <3

      • You do the work of 6 humans and your husband is an idiotdumbassmoron. Glad he’s not my husband, he’d be homeless. Good luck with the railing, I am pulling that it gets built exactly as you desire.
