About Us

The East Africa Youth Leadership Summit (YouLead) is East Africa’s biggest youth gathering bringing together cumulatively over 1000 young people from the EAC countries, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and South Sudan to engage in sector agnostic youth development build a movement of youth participation regionally and nationally.

The summit was inspired by EAC Youth Policy (2016) Priority 14, it strives to implement structural frameworks for youth to become fully engaged as responsible citizens who can influence regional integration and effect change beyond borders. YouLead does that by constantly amplifying youth voices in key regional political processes and strengthening their mandate to participate in leadership at country level. The summit has been expanding a network that aims to facilitate cross-country youth-led actions to accelerate the EAC aspirations with a focus on how regional integration would benefit East African youth.
