YALI Regional Leadership Centers
In July 2014, President Obama announced the creation of YALI Regional Leadership Centers in Africa. Opened in the summer of 2015, these centers build on existing institutional capacity in Africa to provide high quality training, mentoring, and networking support to a greater number of young leaders than can be reached through the Mandela Washington Fellowship. The Centers will reach exceptional young leaders between the ages 18 and 35 from a wide range of backgrounds and diverse experiences.
Dr. Marc Hardy and Dr. Angela R. Logan teach leadership courses periodically at the RLC East Africa in Nairobi, Kenya, and the RLC West Africa in Accra, Ghana. Dr. Hardy and Dr. Logan work in Nonprofit Professional Development in the Mendoza College of Business, and led the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders program at Notre Dame in 2014 and 2015.
