African Youth Empowerment Initiative
ASGA seeks to bring together future generations of young African leaders who are studying within the continent of Africa to gain first-hand experience in international relations, to produce high-quality resolutions aimed at bringing about the Africa we want, and to submit these resolutions to the international community for consideration. ASGA begins with a series of workshops delivered by Diplomats about Youth Involvement, the Agenda 2063, and Leadership. Furthermore, during the first committee session, delegates will have the opportunity to engage at a High Level by benefiting from experts in their field on the committee topics.
