Leadership Development Program

The African Coalition focuses on Afro-centric, culturally competent leadership development and advocacy, to find new solutions to prevent and reduce persistent health disparities and improve health outcomes of the African immigrants by building social belonging, cohesion and trust Since most attitudinal and behavioral change occur in the context of relationships.

Why It Works


The practice works because it uses “trusted” members of a community to educate other community members. African Coalition develops Inter-generational Understanding and Support, provides services that build among individuals, families, and their communities an image of the service organization as caring, understanding of individuals and communities’ situation and needs, non-officious, trustworthy, and concerned with the whole human being and families.

The goal is to directly tackle the weakness in community capacity by building a highly competent community leaders/advocates in many of the dimensions of the national battle against mental health issue including the strengthening of institutional performance, the competence of service delivery to African immigrants and the analysis and planning of key interventions.

Our populations thus represent the full spectrum of the African Diaspora: Ethiopian, Eritrean, Sierra Leonine, Ghanaian, Nigerian, Guinean, Liberian, Cameroonian, Sudanese, Somalian, Kenyaian, Ugandan, and those of Caribbean descent.
