The Young Political Leadership School Africa, an initiative of Naymote Partners for Democratic Development – a leading civil society institution working to advance the principles of democracy, rule of law and good governance across the region has concluded a three-day interactive session for young African Leaders.
The first regional youth summit from March 23-25, 2022, in Freetown, Sierra Leone at the Country Lodge Hotel was held under the theme: Advancing Electoral Integrity for Political Accountability and Leadership in the MRU region.
At least Seventy-five (75) young leaders in politics and civil society from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone attended the summit.
The participants are now alumni of the YPLS Africa.
During the summit, participants learnt, shared, collaborated, networked and dialogued on mitigating electoral violence, fostering electoral integrity and political accountability for development, peace, and security in the region.
The Young Political Leadership School Africa (YPLS Africa) was created in 2016 in response to poor leadership, bad governance, and the exclusion of the youth from political and other decision-making processes across the African continent for more information check https://www.yplsa.org/.
