Annually, six young people of African descent and preferably residing in Africa, aged 18-25 will be admitted into a tailor-made mentoring programme for aspiring African future shapers. A call will be announced in January and potential mentees will be expected to apply online through this website. Successful mentees will undergo lifelong mentorship. 

Potential mentees would naturally aspire towards any or all of the following thematic areas: 

  • Governance & Leadership
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Community Development
  • Civil Society Development

Mentees may also be matched with mentors whose interests and aspirations align with each other but under this mentorship framework. 

Females are strongly encouraged to apply.

The 2020 mentorship cycle is currently open and you can apply here.
