The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, started in 2014, is the flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) that empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. In 2016, the Fellowship will provide 1,000 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. higher education institution with support for professional development after they return home. Thanks to Stephen Greenwald from Wagner College, these si young individuals are studying in New York! Broadway Stages is excited to raise the next generation of film makers!
