The French-African Foundation has published a call for proposals for its 2023 Young Leaders programme on the theme “Unleash the energy”.
The French-African Foundation, founded in 2019, strives to develop generations of devoted leaders in both France and Africa. Every year, it issues a call for applications in all African nations and in France in order to identify and bring together the most potential Franco-African talents.
To overcome the interruption of the 2020 project owing to the COVID-19 dispute, the foundation doubled its membership to 100 Young Leaders in 2021, and the laureates convened in Paris and Dakar under the auspices of Senegal’s President Macky Sall.
The French-African Foundation is currently looking for 30 young individuals from Africa and France to join its next cohort. “Unleash the energy” is the subject of this year’s Young Leaders program.
The foundation, which is supported by France’s President Emmanuel Macron and Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame, will bring together the new class for a week in France in June and a week in Rwanda later in the year for meetings, training, and special professional and personal exchanges.
Candidates must be between the ages of 28 and 40 in 2023, have exhibited leadership talents, or have remarkable professional qualities in their respective industries! Proficiency in English is necessary, while proficiency in French is preferred but not required. All fields of endeavor are accepted.
Applications are open here until March 17. A high-level jury will select the winners, and the results will be announced in May.
