French-African Foundation Young Leaders Programme

Young leaders from France or African countries are invited to join the young leaders programme in order to deliver immediate impact on real time projects. Participants will attend seminars in France and Senegal and they unite at a gala in early summer. The deadline is on Sunday 21st March 2021.

The French-African Foundation supports young people who are taking their first step on the Franco-African economic, political, social and cultural scene.

The foundation holds annual Young Leaders programmes as part of the desire to support the leadership of French and African youth.

Every year, the Young Leaders Program offers young leaders the chance to work on a “real-time” signature project, with an immediate impact on our eco-system.

This year, the programme pays special attention to the development of France and Africa’s sports industries.

The event consists of two seminars, attended by young leaders in both France and Senegal.

After the seminars, participants will deliver a report and case-study based on the resilience of companies and civil society in response to COVID-19. 

The young leaders will be trained in the art of diplomacy, under the leadership of PR agencies in France and Senegal. The two groups will come together at an annual gala event.

The deadline is on Sunday 21st March 2021.
