Africa Matters 2023 Ambassadors Programme for Young Africans

The Africa Matter Ambassador Programme (AMAP) is a one-year blended-learning African leadership development programme that provides 20 successful applicants with critical tools to address the gaps in leadership, accountability and transparency in their communities.

AMAP consists of an online skills development component, a hands-on Community Engagement Project (CEP), cross-continental network building, and mentorship from industry leaders across Africa. With their CEPs, Ambassadors are to identify issues that affect their communities and establish tangible and sustainable solutions to rectify social ills.

During their ambassadorship, each AMAP Ambassador will develop and implement a project that can effectively impact a minimum of 50 people in their border community. Thus, the programme’s broader impact will benefit hundreds of community members across sub-Saharan Africa. Through this process, the Africa Matters team coaches and guides the Ambassadors to plan, scale, implement, sustain and advise on monitoring and evaluating their projects

The program has three (3) components. The first is bi-monthly educational and interactive sessions with facilitators on different topics (e.g. financial literacy, personal development, social entrepreneurship and others.) which are supplemented with mandatory assignments.

The second component is mentorship, where each AMAP Ambassador is assigned a mentor to assist in their personal and professional development. The third component is a community engagement project, where each AMAP Ambassador are required to identify issues that affect their communities and establish tangible and sustainable solutions to rectify social ills. The CEP is to be carried out by the end of the programme.
