Description: The Young African Leaders Initiative Regional Learning Center Southern Africa (YALI RLC-SA), with funding from the USAID HELIX initiative, requests proposals from U.S. Higher Education Institutions interested in being part of the future of YALI to partner with the YALI RLC-SA and the University of South Africa (Unisa). The purpose of the HELIX award is two-fold and requires partnering with US HEI/s, who will:
- Develop a Human-Centered Design Thinking Module for incorporation into the RLC-SA curriculum and build capacity for trainers and facilitators who will deliver this module to YALI participants in Southern Africa and across key UNISA academic departments; and
- Build the resource mobilization capacity of YALI Africa, the entity that brings together the four RLCs on the continent for sustainability.
