Pan African Youth Leadership Program

Palm oil trading and supply blueprint

The Pan Africa Youth Leadership Program began in FY 2013 and directly supports the U.S. foreign policy goal of youth empowerment and development by equipping exchange participants with the knowledge and skills to become active and responsible members of their communities.

In addition to nurturing young leaders, the program also supports the Department’s goal of fostering regional cooperation on the African continent. The program offers secondary school youth (ages 15-18) and a small number of adult educators from countries in Sub-Saharan Africa the opportunity to engage in intensive, thematic exchanges in the United States focused on civic education, community service, and youth leadership development.
