Mandela Fellows


For the last two years, the Office of University-Community Partnerships (OUCP) and Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N) participated in the 2019 Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Mandela Washington Fellowship Newark visit on Thursday, July 25, 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 provides 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.
