Pan African Youth Leadership Forum; Apply

We are pleased to announce that Friends of Africa International, Inc. (FAI), in collaboration with the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science, will be hosting our third annual Pan-African Youth Leadership Forum (PAYLF), December 10-14, 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
More than just a conference, this year’s Forum is a series of initiatives set forth by FAI to provide a platform for a commitment to youth development in Africa. Emphasis will be placed on peace and security as a means to promote economic and political stability in the era of the African Renewal. PAYLF III’s main objective is to establish a permanent infrastructure for a future corps of well-informed, active, and committed youths to answer the call to rebuild failed institutions throughout the continent.
Delegates at this year’s Forum will participate in skill building workshops, training sessions, and breakout sessions alongside international expert resource persons (made available by FAI and its partners) from various parts of the world. Several of the key issues that delegates will discuss include: monitoring elections, monitoring peace and security measures, women’s rights and development, assessing economic development, assessing climate change, and promoting youth mentorship.
The upcoming event will not only bring together promising young Africans from across the continent, but also young people from various other continents as well, so that they can share their experiences and expertise, questions and concerns, and their hopes and dreams for the future revitalization and development of Africa.
