    ALA’s newest global program, Explore Africa, is an overnight camp for emerging leaders ready to expand their knowledge of the continent and make friends from around the world. This GSP experience introduces students to design-thinking, leadership skills, and social entrepreneurship while immersing them in the dramatic history, dynamic culture, and spectacular wildlife of South Africa. Participants will leave ready to take on leadership roles in their schools or communities.

  • Engage Africa is the perfect next step for young leaders to realize their dreams of becoming global change makers!

    ALA’s classic summer program engages young leaders in design-thinking, leadership training, service-learning, adventure, and cross-cultural exchange, preparing them to create change in Africa and around the world. Participants practice leadership by working with social ventures, South African entrepreneurs and community members. They develop skills through team-based challenges while building a global network of peers and discovering the history, beauty, and diversity of Africa. Participants leave with the tools to start their own social and civic ventures!
