Most of the young leaders from African Leadership Academy (ALA) decide to pursue university studies in North America after graduating from the Academy. Graduate Hosts play an important role in this transition to life after ALA. Hosts help these students adjust to their new surroundings and offer them a range of on-going support. Hosting a young leader in your home is not a strict requirement. However, by providing guidance and a sense of community, Hosts ensure that ALA's young leaders continue to succeed after ALA.
