Are you looking for the chance of a lifetime?
Are you ready to lead?
Are you 25 to 35 years old?

The U.S. Government is inviting 500 young African leaders to come to the United States as Washington Fellows in mid-2014.

What is the Washington Fellowship?

The Washington Fellowship is the flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) that aims to further empower and bolster young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, and follow-on support.  The Washington Fellowship is geared towards outstanding young leaders that have several years of professional experience and a proven record of accomplishment in leading and promoting positive change in their organizations, institutions, or communities.  Beginning in mid-2014, the program will bring 500 of Africa’s most promising young leaders to top U.S. universities for a 6 week academic and leadership institute in one of three areas: business and entrepreneurship; civic leadership; or public management.

This program is your opportunity to:

- Interact with President Obama at a Presidential Summit in Washington, DC.
- Participate in a 6-week leadership and mentoring program at a U.S. institution.
- Meet with U.S. government, civic, and business leaders.
- Become part of a robust regional network with opportunities for continued leadership and career enhancement.
- Benefit from follow-on regional programs and access support funding for your local projects.

Online applications will be available in early December 2013!  Visit http://youngafricanleaders.state.gov/ to learn more and apply.

More importantly, spread the word!  Please share this announcement with any young leader who may benefit from this program.

"Nelson Mandela reminds us that it always seems impossible until it is done" said President Obama speaking this morning at the national memorial service for former South African President #Mandela  in Johannesburg. On behalf of the American people, here is another tribute to Madiba by Maya Angelou: http://youtu.be/PqQzjit7b1w

Great place for families - lots of activites. Apartments are nice & roomy. Would definitely stay here again. Better to have a car here, but it is possible to get by w/ the free shuttles, DC Metro, etc.

Fast & Friendly service, but if you have time, there's much better food down the street in Eden Center.

This is our family's favorite Ethiopian restaurant in Virginia. The staff is extremely friendly, and the food is delicious. The best Shiro Wot we've had in the US, and everything else is great too: fresh injera, yebeg alicha wot, chai (tea), and great buna (coffee) & machiatto's. The whole shopping center is awesome - shops, cafe's, and salons. We love it!

My family's new favorite Mexican Restaurant. We'll never forget Celia's in Menlo Park, but now that we're in Virginia, we needed to find something - and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and friendly service at this chain restaurant, located in-between Safeway and Target in Falls Church / 7 Corners. I highly recommend the Tortilla soup - last time we ordered 4 of them!
