Our Values “Advancing Africa’s transformation through global skill transfers and educational mentorship.” At the core of our mission is the advancement of Africa through its youth. With 70% of the African population below the age of 30 Africa's youth are the foremost social capitals that require priority investment. We invest in them through the transfer of skills and mentorship to get to college. Our values were refined from over 50 values we found to be important, demonstrating how we truly believe in them. It is our expectation that as an ambassador you embrace them fully as they set the tone of our commitment towards our students. Our Mission

Events and Fundraising As an ambassador it is your duty to keep mentors energized and involved in EA. This can be accomplished by holding on campus events, and fundraising. There may be money in the budget to help with some events; however, this is not guaranteed. Thus, it is your responsibility to fundraise money for any event. Before having an event you should complete an event proposal and submit it to Samantha Kelly for authorization.
Ambassador Reports Ambassadors are required to submit a monthly report to Samantha Kelly. Reports should be completed fully and in a timely manner. Please write something in the comment area. It will allow us to assist you better and make changes.
