Promoting leadership and ensuring a successful transition from school for AGSP scholars

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This presentation will be experientially-based rather than research-based so the criteria of ‘clarity of research methods’ and ‘clarity of theoretical framework’ are not directly applicable.

Targeting girls and boys from minority groups, orphans and other vulnerable groups, or those girls and boys facing adverse economic circumstances, the AGSP takes an innovative approach in cultivating a new generation of future leaders in Africa.

Engaging community groups such as mothers’ associations, junior mentors, AGSP Alumnae and mentors’ associations trained in leadership skills, AED has built a pool of girls’ education activists to sustain the program. The mentoring program, which is compulsory for all beneficiaries, provides scholars with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to become agents of change in their respective communities but also successful members of their society, and give back to their communities to promote future development.

This presentation will focus on several case studies throughout sub-Saharan Africa that highlight the AGSP mentoring program which prepares beneficiaries to take leadership roles in their communities and successfully transition from school to adult life.
