Fort Hare Autumn School Alumni

Founded in 2016, the Fort Hare Autumn School (FHAS) Alumni Network unites all students and graduates of the FHAS Programme. Over one hundred students have graduated from the FHAS, thereby advancing their understanding of Social Democracy as well as their leadership capabilities. The FHAS Alumni Network addresses the need to establish a closer link among the Alumni and with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) South Africa. It provides a platform for progressive young South African leaders to build networks for intellectual and career-related exchange.
