Each year, CSAAE hosts the Emerging African Leaders Foundation Conference.  The Conference kicks off CSAAE’s three-year Emerging African Leaders Program (ELP) and is designed to address Africa’s leadership problems, challenge future leaders to seek solutions to community problems and orient them towards moral values that enhance the greater good for Africa. The conference provides emerging leaders the opportunity to engage critical actors in development and nation building, set goals for the year and network.
