Become Today’s Change Agent @LeapAfrica

Opportunity for young people Age 15 - 25:

Leadership, Effectiveness, Accountability and Professionalism (LEAP) Africa is a nonprofit organization, which is committed to developing dynamic, innovative and principled African leaders. Given our conviction that young people can and should serve as change agents in their communities, LEAP offers its Summer Youth Leadership Programme for young people across Nigeria to increase their capacity to transform their communities.

About the Summer Youth Programme
LEAP's Youth Leadership Programme is modeled after international best practices and emerging lessons from Ford Foundation's youth leadership efforts across the globe.

The objectives of the leadership programme are to:

- Support youth through the process of "looking within" to take stock of their current skills, talents and inclinations as well as their dreams and visions for the future.

- Expose youth to the concept of leadership, and offer them some tools and skills for effective leadership.

- Encourage youth to commence change projects in their communities in order to test and apply what they have learnt through the training programmes, as well as to improve the lives of others.
