Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership

The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL), underpins our collaborative work with educators and other stakeholders, producing content and tools. The curriculum framework it has developed is called the Entrepreneurial Leadership Learning System, and it is the bedrock of the leadership development experience at ALA.

African Leadership Academy has invested thousands of hours of design, iteration, and testing into a framework that formed the foundation for our youth development model. The emphasis was, and has always been, on creating opportunities to practice leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

Through our Collaborate work, we seek to identify and create partnerships across the continent to accelerate the adoption of experiential learning models, such as exist at ALA. We believe that the content and tools we have developed can be adapted to diverse learning contexts. Please download or request these resources and explore how you could use them in your classroom, program, or school.
