Mandela Fellows


The Office of University-Community Partnerships (OUCP) and Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N) hosted Newark Campus visits with the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Mandela Washington Fellowship Newark in 2018 and 2019.  YALI is a signature effort that invests in the next generation of African leaders. The Mandela Washington Fellowship is YALI’s flagship program, bringing Sub-Saharan African civic, business, and community leaders for academic coursework, leadership training, and networking at U.S. colleges and universities. The Rutgers University – Newark visit provided Fellows an opportunity to interact with and gain insight from local community-based and health professionals, yielding an exciting and rewarding exchange of ideas and energies.
