Curriculum and experience designed to empower leaders

Civic and Human studies

The Azikiwes and Mandelas were the led the emancipation of Africans in the 1960s. The next leaders will come from technology, experts in AI and the fourth industrial revolution. We ensure they are equipped with knowledge of their heritage, values that drive sustainability and a belief that they can lead transformation that matters

v Purposely use of technology
v How to improve the world

Workplace studies

The largest gap amongst talent that comes from Africa and predominantly Black and Brown communities is that they have lacked access to picking of soft/ power skills that set people up for excellence in the professional world. We help trigger your journey to being a standout professional going forward

v Team-work
v Public speaking
v Building online portfolios and profiles

Technology studies

Black and brown people are greatly underrepresented in emerging technologies today, already leading to bias and unfairness in real products and opportunities. By equipping members of our clubs with this knowledge, they will be ready to get into non-technical and technical roles in AI to foster inclusion for responsible and sustainable use of AI

FAQs

What is a chapter?

 A chapter is similar to a club that is formed by a secondary school or university with an aim for the members to have weekly discussions on curated topics provided by the Alliance4ai packet.

What is a Alliance4ai packet?

A packet is a learning guideline offered by Alliance4ai that has structured content both technical and non-technical. It is used by chapters and training programs to learn about various things like leadership character, learning practices, and knowledge in artificial intelligence.

Do I need to be enrolled in an institution / training program?

No, you can explain your particular need in your application and we will get back to you.

What responsibilities does a leader of a chapter have?

To facilitate the sessions, report the monthly group’s activities, and ensure the club is active.

How do I get started?

To register and start a chapter in your institution, you can follow these steps

  • Gather interested individuals
  • Select a committee of three individuals eg. President, Secretary, Adviser.
  • Head to the Alliance4ai website and register the chapter.
  • Download the packet.
  • Organize a timetable that you and your team can use to engage with the content
  • Ensure all participants are signed up on Alliance4ai communities to stay plugged to information - Newsletter, Twitter, Facebook.

On a monthly basis do a report on how you are faring with the content and other factors

What are the objectives of a chapter?

We care about bringing kindness, purpose, and productivity back to African communities.

You'll work on character qualities that help you excel in today’s world, and knowledge of AI to make you productive and build world-class solutions

We can use these learnings to care for one another and path our ways to eradicating poverty and hardship.

Can an existing AI community or training school use the Alliance4ai packet?

Yes they can. Follow the same steps for getting started above, except you won’t be starting from scratch and recruiting a management team because you already have one. 

 

Just leverage the application form on this page, we review to provide access to the packet and then you add Alliance4ai materials to your learning plan. You have your learners stay updated with African AI by following Alliance4ai on the newsletter and social channels, and you send us a simple report every month.

How long does the chapter program go for?

You can remain part of the chapter for as long as you are in your school organization, selecting new topics to discuss or working on new projects with your teammates. After you graduate that school program, you can remain part of the Alliance4ai pan-African and global community.

What is the learning format?

We offer a blended model of learning that does not require a teacher if you don’t have one. There are physical elements and online elements that require internet access. You receive a curated list of important topics you can discuss with your groups, and then a link to resources - articles, videos, books or online courses that you can consume to inform further discussions within your group.

What support will I receive during the chapter program?

Through sharing your story on our social media platforms you get to be exposed to many opportunities and get to learn from others.

What is the learning process?
  • Introduction to the content in the packet eg. What is AI, the chapter facilitator allows discussions and encourages all answers.
  • Consumption of the days content which is either a  lecture, a video, or reading material.
  • Reflection on what was learned as the facilitator can also lead the discussion or set questions prior to the conversation.
  • Practice, if the content being handled is technical.
  • Apply the concept learned on projects, where applicable.
Do you have materials to share where we can learn more about AI?

Yes. Once you visit our website, go to the “learn” menu and select any link you are interested in. Today, you can find introductory information about AI, see how it applies to different industries, and learn how to solve common problems faced by Africans, like access data, or GPU compute resources or people to work with.
