One Young World Leading Africa Scholarship (Canada) 2024

One Young World is the global community for young leaders. It inspires young leaders to increase their social impact, builds their skills and capacity, and elevates their profiles both locally and globally.

The annual One Young World Summit convenes 2,000 young leaders, from 190+ countries to develop solutions to the world’s big challenges. They connect, share learnings, and are inspired by political, business and humanitarian leaders such as Justin Trudeau, Paul Polman and Mary Robinson.

Delegates return to their communities and organisations as One Young World Ambassadors with the connections, insights, and motivation to act, accessing the global community of 15,500+ young leaders to accelerate existing social impact initiatives or establish new ventures.

One Young World strives to identify the most impactful young leaders from every country in the world. Scholarships provide the opportunity for exceptional young people to attend on the merit of their proven leadership and ability to create change in their home country. Leading Africa is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from Africa are represented at One Young World Summits.

Young leaders across Africa are devising meaningful strategies to build a more sustainable region. Are you one of those leaders? If so, One Young World is looking to bring you to our next annual Summit.
