YALI, Microsoft ADC partner to empower African youth with digital skills

The Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) has partnered with Microsoft Africa Development Center (ADC) to improve the digital skills of young people in the East African region.

Through this partnership, YALI and Microsoft ADC will work together to equip African youth with the digital skills they need to succeed in the 21st-century workforce. The partnership will leverage the YALI network of young leaders and Microsoft’s resources to provide training and mentorship in digital skills such as data analysis, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing.

This will help young Africans acquire the technical skills and knowledge required for jobs in the digital economy, where demand for skilled workers is rapidly increasing.
