The Council Of Young African Leaders will host the 5th annual CUNY Young African Leadership Symposium (YALS) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan, New York. This year’s theme Transforming Africa Through Partnerships will focus on the importance of public and private partnerships, within the African community and abroad.
The event will be an opportunity for attendants to engage students, young leaders, young professionals, and entrepreneurs to deepen their engagement and strengthen their commitment to Africa by developing strong public-private partnerships that are geared towards developing, reforming, and strengthening Africa’s structures and institutions. Some of these partnerships promise to lay the foundations of new institutions and frameworks better able to respond to the demands of the 21st Century.
