There's a Theme: Investing in the Next Generation

The White House recently hosted a Young African Leaders Initiative summit. Although many African nations have been working on their own youth initiatives, some have made commitments to establish new programs and activities as a result of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. Cote d’Ivoire, for example, has declared 2014 a Year of Employment with special initiatives focused on youth, including a Young Entrepreneurs Competition. Tanzania intends to announce the establishment of a "State House Fellows" program, modeled on the White House Fellows program in the United States.
