Young African Leaders Institute (YALI) Mandela Fellowship Program

2023 YALI group Dr. Scott and Incoming President Dr. Vinson

Howard University was selected as one of the host sites for the YALI Mandela Fellow Program for the third straight year. The Walters Center has served as a partner in the program since its inception. During the summer of 2016, Dr. Elsie Scott, Director of the Walters Center, served as Academic Director.  Twenty-five young professionals from sub-Saharan Africa spent six weeks participating in a Public Management Institute at Howard.  The Walters Center helped organized lectures, educational experiences outside the classroom and cultural experiences for the fellows.
