2015 YALI Dartmouth Fellows

The Mandela Washington Fellows Program is at the center of President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), a State Department-led program that is working to provide opportunities to "spur growth, strengthen democratic systems and enhance peace and security."

Dartmouth’s Mandela Washington Fellows Institute focuses on business and entrepreneurship. We present two academic components that complement one another: an intensive design-thinking workshop, followed by an entrepreneurship course. Fellows leave Dartmouth with a core understanding of business and entrepreneurship gained through intensive classroom work, hands-on experiences with innovative design thinking, and an integrated set of opportunities to explore concepts of civic engagement, team building, and leadership
