YALIVotes

Africa is rising and Africa is voting. As young leaders, you can show the importance of participating in elections and staying actively engaged in civic life after the polls close, to make your voice heard. Elections are important not just for you and your country, but can have a widespread impact on the political behavior across the the entire continent of Africa.

YALIVotes encourages civic participation through elections and social responsibility. Elections are the fundamental means by which citizens connect to their government and the world.  Make your voice heard by voting and staying civically engaged in your community.

Smart citizens understand that democracies need active, informed, responsible citizens to be healthy. These citizens promote peace and urge their communities to refrain from violence during and after elections. They also encourage their elected leaders and public officials to remain transparent and accountable while in office.

Once you've completed the courses and watched the videos above, help ensure your community is made up of ‘Smart Citizens.’  You can share your knowledge and empower others by using the facilitation guide below to organize a YALILearns session and educate others in your community.
