Pre-departure Orientation for the 2018 Mandela Washington Fellowship

The Public Affairs Section organized a pre-departure orientation for the 2018 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders (YALI) cohort to prepare this year’s participants for their program. Guinea’s nine Fellows will join other young leaders from across the continent for six weeks at various institutes in America to build their skills in the areas of business, public management and civic engagement. They will also learn about American systems and culture, and connect with other bright Africans. During the program, Ambassador Hankins congratulated the fellows for being selected for this year’s program and encouraged them to use what they learn during their program to make positive changes in their respective areas in Guinea.
