ELP Graduate speaks at World Bank Spring Meeting


The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is one of the four programs we have successfully implemented since 2013. The 3-year program is aimed at raising a new generation of political, judicial, media, religious and business leaders with the capacities, competencies, and character for good governance. It includes biannual conferences and weekly webinars on good governance, ethical and creative leadership, one-on-one mentoring, engagement in social impact projects and leadership building experiences.


ELP leadership building experience provides helps our emerging leaders gain practical leadership skills from leaders with demonstrated knowledge, experience, and virtues. Recently, one of the graduates of ELP, Michelle Nwagha was invited by World Bank to participate in the 2018 World Bank Spring Meeting at Washington D.C. She was a panelist during a session on “Nipping Corruption in the Bud” alongside African Union Ambassador to the United States and Father Godswill Agbagwa, our Founder.


Currently, ELP trainee, Ijeoma Tagbo, is undertaking a paid 6-month internship at our office in Nigeria. This is to nurture her on ethics at the workplace, provide practical work experience before graduation from the university and equip her with professional skill on digital marketing, database development, and social media management. Using resources available at the Centre, she has demonstrated improved skills in social media management and currently manages all CSAAE’s social media account. With support from our US-based IT experts, she is developing a robust online database for CSAAE.


CSAAE is an international non-profit organization founded by Rev. Fr. Dr. Godswill Agbagwa, a priest of the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri resident in the U.S.A. The Centre is registered in Nigeria and USA to redress the challenges of leadership, poor entrepreneurial spirit, and misguided social and moral sense – all of which are believed to be causes of poverty and underdevelopment in Africa. It is accomplishing these through four youth-focused programs designed to nurture a new generation of African leaders imbued with the character and skill set necessary to facilitate development, end poverty and make Africa a better place. The programs include the Emerging African Leaders Program (ELP), Career Building and Entrepreneurship Program (CBEP), Students Ethics and Anti-Corruption Network (SEACON) and Network of Effective African Leaders (NEAL).
