Upcoming Services

Sunday July 23, 2017

July 23: The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is the flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative that empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. In 2017, the Fellowship is providing 1,000 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. higher education institution with support for professional development after they return home. The cohort of twenty-five Fellows studying at Appalachian State this summer represent a variety of careers including agriculture and food security, community development, disability advocacy, education, girls’ and women’s empowerment, law, non-profit management, and youth advocacy. Three speakers from the cohort at Appalachian State will share their “Ignite Talks,” that explain and advocate for the work they are doing in their countries.
