About YouLead Summit


Convened annually, YouLead Summit is co-hosted by Training Centre for Development Cooperation (MSTCDC), the East African Community (EAC) and other partners. YouLead Summit is YouLead’s annual climax event and is now East Africa’s largest forum of young leaders, mentors, government officials and youth organizations representatives from all the 6 EAC Partner States (Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan) to focus on crafting responses to the region’s rapidly growing youth population, their challenges and opportunities. Two focus areas define conversations at YouLead Summit: a) Youth in Politics - how youth leadership can be reinvented and entrenched), b) Youth in Business and Enterprise - how youth might meaningfully engage in national and cross border entrepreneurship/business in East Africa taking advantage of an already existing enabling regional policy and institutional environment). Over 300 youth leaders, mentors, government officials, youth issues experts participate in each YouLead Summit edition in Arusha, Tanzania and many more others participate at country level through pre-summit events.
