WHAT WE DO
WHY WE DO THIS
Young people are usually marginalised in the national political or leadership process because of their age, limited opportunities, lack of mentorship, and lack of experience and as such this network seeks to bridge the gap and help the youth to become responsible and innovative leaders.
We seek to be the world’s leading network that trains, mentors, provide a network platform and prepares young leaders for diplomacy, entrepreneurship, politics and the corporate world.
One of the major challenges facing the youth in Africa is unemployment. The Young Global Leaders Network believes that in helping solve this huge challenge, inculcating the culture of entrepreneurship, providing the needed support, training, mentorship and facilitation will greatly help in solving the huge unemployment problem on the continent. This, YGLN will do through its flagship programme called, Kickstart Entrepreneurship Challenge under Kickstart Innovation Hub Ltd.
Women especially black women continue to be underrepresented in political leadership and corporate, YGLN seeks to turn the tides believing that we need more women leaders. This gap we seek to bridge through our Women Lead Initiative.
The goal is to transform passive youths into a passionate citizen who shall serve as agents of positive change and assume leadership roles in different sectors of the national polity. We are working towards creating a generation of youth who are determiners of their own destiny, who are aware that leadership places a demand in accountability, and passionate to create a better society for future generations.
