Taking on leadership roles in Universities prepares students for future leadership and prepare them to face challenges in the future. Experience suggests that most university student leaders end up taking leadership positions in the country. Unfortunately, some student leaders fade into oblivion if they do not end up in political leadership or similar public facing positions.
The Student Leadership Ambassadors Program (SLAP) is a program of eMentoring Africa whose sole purpose is to nurture the leadership traits and attributes of the student leaders, through mentorship. Our goal is to infuse ethical leadership in the universities and prepare them to transition into credible society leaders of tomorrow.
SLAP admission is FREE but COMPETITIVE. If you wish to join the SLAP 2017 class, please submit your expression of interest including: your full name, leadership position, profile of club/association, and justification of why you should be selected. Interviews will begin in November 2016.
“Nurturing good and ethical student leaders is an important element to our success as a country. SLAP is the leadership laboratory for the University students”
|“Students are encouraged to develop the necessary skills to enable them to take responsibility both in their school and the wider community”|
“SLAP sessions are filled with positive energy, learning and friendship
Nationalism and civic cohesion, talent search and development, life skills, healthy living, community service & volunteerism & Entrepreneurship
This is a structured, two-phased program that links the out of school youth with volunteer role models and mentors who positively influence and guide the youth’s approach to life. The youth from these communities are usually the less educated whose age range between 17 – 31 years. The focus is on supporting these youngsters to successfully negotiate the transition points in their life. The goal of the Phase one ‘transformational mentorship program’ is to help the out of school, unemployed and therefore vulnerable youth develop positive thinking about themselves and gain basic skills that are essential for their personal and national development.
Assistance Mentorship Program: This is Phase II of our community youth mentoring program. It aims at equipping the out of school youth, including Form 4 leavers with entrepreneurial skills and helping them set up gainful self-employment ventures. Through this training, we link the young entrepreneurs with experienced business people and educators with a belief that this will not only result to individual but collective economic and social prosperity of our nation.
PASS IT ON is a program that targets the pre-university students after finishing the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE). Our rationale is that the time span between completion of KCSE and enrollment into campus is a critical point in one’s life. The PASS IT ON program starts with a one-day forum dubbed ‘The Ultimate Mentoring Experience’, held in a central location where youth are motivated and introduced to the PASS IT ON program through a series of talks and activities on four key pillars, namely: Career guidance, Entrepreneurship sensitization, Inculcating spirit of volunteerism and Talent commercialization.
