FLED YOUNG AMBASSADORS PROGRAM
… The Emerging transformational Leaders
FLED Young Ambassadors – FYA – is a value-based, age-segmented program designed to build the capacity of Africa’s young people to lead responsible personal lives and to become active public citizens.

FLED Young Ambassadors Program derives from a carefully created age-specific curriculum that produces specific outcomes in the lives of Program Participants/Members. FYA Program focuses on seven key competencies.
Personal competency – actions that reflect understanding of one’s own opinions and thoughts and those of others in order to handle situations appropriately and non-violently (independent living skills, decision making & problem solving, self-esteem & self-confidence, speaking up for oneself, etc.).
Cognitive competency – intellectual development and the integration of information into operational functions (analytical thinking, Organizational skills, developing good study habits, ability to evaluation information, etc.)
Creative competency – exploration and development of self-expression (artistic expression, express individuality, ability to utilize free time to engage in creative activities)
Mental health competency -ability to identify, understand and deal with one’s emotions and feelings (sense of well-being, developing coping skills, etc.).
Social competency – the manner in which one consistently responds to other individuals, expects other individuals to respond to oneself and interactions with members of groups sharing one’s “social address” as well as with members of groups different than one’s own (trust, respect, caring, involvement, communication skills, conflict resolution skills).
Civic competency – a core of respect and values for the civil and human rights of oneself and others and the recognition that one can further these rights for oneself and one’s community by participating in the governmental process and in community service and organization; African in the eye of the World, African in the eye of Africans (changing the narratives, taking responsibility, participating in volunteer community service, advocacy engagement, etc).
Entrepreneurial competency – vocational awareness, how small ideas develop into big businesses, how wealth creation follows from solving problems, the vastness of Africa as market for ideas and products.

Program Operation Guide
- Registration to join the Program at any level is one-off. That is, registration fee is paid once. There is no annual membership fee paid thereafter. Once someone attains the maximum age for the Program level they enrolled, they will be graduated. If they desire to join the next level of the program, they have to pay registration fee for that level. If they decide not to continue with the Program, they can simply graduate out.
- Registration in the Program does not include fees that could be charged for different activities that will be held during the program lifespan.
- Any young person anywhere in Africa can enrol in the FYA Program. Programs will be delivered onsite and online as the case might be to ensure participants benefit maximally from the Program within their limitations.
