The Obama Administration’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is a signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. President Obama launched YALI in 2010 to support young African leaders as they spur growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across Africa.
In a video message to YALI participants, President Obama says that he believes the future of Africa will be defined by extraordinary young people, and that the United States wants to partner with them for decades to come.
