The Africa Matter Ambassador Program (AMAP) is a 1-year blended-learning African leadership development program which provides successful applicants with online training, skills development (soft skills, African Leadership, African Feminisms, and Social Entrepreneurship), cross continental network building, mentorship from industry leaders across Africa and the implementation of four-community impact projects.
For the last 6 months the inaugural Ambassadors have been hard at work. They have completed their training modules and are have recently begun the practical element of the program. Their community impact projects are intertwined with Africa Matter’s YLDP and SLDP workshops.
Ambassadors are to identify issues that affect their communities and establish tangible and sustainable solutions to rectify them. They are to collaborate and train youth in their communities who do not form part of the Africa Matters community to achieve tangible youth empowerment cross communities. Ambassadors will then begin establishing Africa Matters hubs in their countries.
