African MasterClass Series


African MasterClass Series

The African MasterClass Series is a six-week immersive learning experience, that empowers early-stage non-profit professionals, entrepreneurs, social innovators and changemakers to solve pressing problems on the continent and scale lasting impact through innovation. Africa is rising and requires innovators, thought-leaders and visionaries who will work with big ideas and leverage collaboration to birth our new future.

We cannot look away anymore, and now, in the midst of a global pandemic; we know that things will never be the same again. How can we ride on the waves of this current disruption to trigger transformations for our communities and nations?

A key goal of the MasterClass Series is also to facilitate valuable mentorship access, by connecting global leaders and African innovators with young changemakers. We believe that an energetic ecosystem is needed for all those who envision our prosperous future.

This Edition covers the 15 Pillar Competencies for “Creating and Scaling Social Impact” across the SDG themes, within the African context and especially for practitioners in the first five years of their work.

All Modules are delivered fully online, complete with Mentor Interviews, Course Videos, Worksheets, Case Studies and other Supporting Resources. Our delegates may get an opportunity to work together on Community Projects across various impact areas.
