The Africa Society of the National Summit on Africa


advisory group

In 2014, The Africa Society formed a Youth Advisory Board (now The Advisory Group).

This group of individuals has strong leadership abilities and accomplishments and experience in the public and private sectors. They act as a sounding board and provide a fresh perspective on how to educate and engage different constituencies in the United States and on the Continent of Africa. The Advisory Group also informs and strengthens the Society with its knowledge and its networks.
