Aspiring Conservation Leaders Programme

The Chipembele Aspiring Conservation Leader (ACL) programme is for students who have finished secondary school, and who have the potential to become conservation leaders for Zambia. The ACL programme aims to bridge the knowledge gap for school leavers wanting to enter conservation careers and includes training sessions, a field-based camp, participation in scheduled Chipembele conservation programmes, work experience placements and a week-long career development trip to Lusaka. During this time the ACL students have the opportunity to meet with other conservation NGOs operating in Zambia and visit universities to look at the conservation programmes on offer and university student life.
