African Presidential Leadership Program 2019

African Presidential Leadership Program (APLP)

In the line with Egypt’s focus on creating a promising youth base qualified to carry the leadership torch within all areas on a political, administrative or community front, and possess profound national awareness with a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by the country, the decision to launch the presidential programs to train youth was born.

Through the Presidential Programs, the academy works to inject competent youth into the pipelines of the governmental sector and any other sectors that contribute to building and supporting the national economy and developing and raising the efficiency and performance of their workers in the administrative sector of the state. The impact of the Presidential Programs also extends to support the leadership and competencies within neighboring Arab and African countries.
