Emerging (African) Leaders Program Application

Do you have passion for public service? Do you want to be a political leader, top ranking civil servant or influential public official? Are you interested in policy and law-making in Africa?

ELP may be for you. ELP is responding to Africa’s failure of leadership by nurturing a new generation of ethical and innovative African leaders.

Through a combination of leadership conferences, summits, virtual trainings, mentoring, leadership-building experiences, ethical re-orientation, community development projects and research, Emerging Leaders develop the qualities of highly effective leaders.

To enable them complete college, CSAAEINC supports their education through need-based scholarships. While in the program they promote ethics and excellence in leadership on campus. They also provide innovative solutions to community problems.

Upon completion of the program, at which time they have also graduated from the university, CSAAEINC works them to get into public service, supports them as they work their ways to influential positions and guides them to effect positive social change.

These Effective Leaders in turn mentor other Emerging Leaders and work with CSAAEINC on various community development projects
