SERVIR and SPoRT Hosting Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders Participant

NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s SERVIR and Short-term Prediction Research and Transition (SPoRT) Center programs have been selected to host Komlan “Richard” Folly, a native of Togo, West Africa, participating in the prestigious Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders in August and September 2017. The Mandela Washington Fellowship, the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking opportunities. The Fellows, who are between the ages of 25 and 35, have established records of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive change in their organizations, institutions, communities, and countries. These young leaders represent the diversity of Africa, including equal numbers of women and men, individuals with disabilities, and people from both urban and rural areas.
