Accra, Ghana, June 21, 2024 – Emerging Public Leaders of Ghana (EPL Ghana), with the support of the Mastercard Foundation, proudly announces the induction of 35 young graduates into its flagship Public Service Fellowship (PSF) Programme.

This significant event marks the beginning of their journey as the next generation of change agents in Ghana’s public and civil sectors and opens unique opportunities for them to make a real difference in their communities.

The orientation, held over three days at Ensign College in the Eastern Region, is a testament to our commitment to preparing these top candidates selected through a rigorous, merit-based recruitment process for the realities, challenges, and opportunities within Ghana’s public service.

The comprehensive orientation programme, with its focus on ethical leadership, change management, resilience, and a strong work ethic, is designed to equip Fellows with the skills and knowledge necessary for effective performance throughout their fellowship, instilling confidence in their preparedness.

Ms. Juliet A. Amoah, Country Director of EPL Ghana, inaugurated the orientation by addressing the new Fellows’ responsibilities.

She emphasised the importance of upholding high standards and a code of conduct, urging the Fellows to embody the discipline and leadership expected from their national leaders.

As stated, “This is not your usual leadership training. It is about change. You have received more than enough leadership training to last you a lifetime. It is time for you to step up as a change maker.

You have everything it takes to take action. Change must happen and it must start now.”

Among the new Fellows is Derick Mintah, a person living with a disability who appreciated the
PSF programme’s inclusivity.

Callister Tiitaabu Muonah, a nursing mother, also shared her story of perseverance.

She remarked, “The process was tough, but my passion for public service and resilience kept me going.

This opportunity is essential for every young person aspiring to make a significant impact, and I am eager to use it positively”.

The 35 Fellows will be placed in various civil service and public sector organisations in Ghana.

Throughout their one-year fellowship, they will engage in mentorship and continuous training programmes to equip them with the knowledge and skills to drive positive change and innovation within the public and sector.

EPL Ghana is confident that these high-achieving individuals, through their participation in the PSF programme, will not only enhance the public sector workforce but also contribute significantly to the shared vision of a prosperous Ghana, instilling a sense of hope for a brighter future.
