ELP Leadership Foundation Conferences

ELP Leadership Foundation Conference is a component of CSAAEINC’s Emerging African Leaders Program (ELP). Each year, ELP kicks off with this Conference. The Foundation conference is designed to broaden the horizons of the emerging leaders, help them set personal and community development goals, as well as dream big.  The conference focuses on three key areas:

  1. State of the Nation: To expose future African leaders to the state of the continent, problems and prospects facing future African leaders.
  2. Creative and innovative Leadership: To equip future African leaders with effective leadership skills needed to tackle Africa’s problems,  facilitate development, end poverty  and make Africa a better place.
  3. Ethical Leadership: To immerse future African leaders  in the virtues needed for effective leadership in Africa.

At the end of this conference, emerging leaders are expected to come up with the following: One Personal Development Goal (PDG) bordering on any of the virtues that the Centre wishes to inculcate into the future leaders. One Community Development Project (CDP) to tackle a specific problem in Africa. One Big Dream (BD): What the emerging leader wants to be in future. The Centre works with each Emerging Leader to achieve dream and goals.

Conference is free for Emerging Leaders including transport, accommodation, meals and conference materials.
