LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Development Programme 2024

Deadline: 9th of June, 2024

The 2024 LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Development Program is now accepting applications.Youth in Nigeria are impatient to take initiative, lead, and effect change. It’s unclear, though, if they possess all the information and abilities needed to be successful in these roles. Are they following the appropriate role models? Do they really know what it means to lead oneself before leading others?

In order to close this gap, LEAP Africa created the Youth Leadership Development Programme, which provides tertiary institution undergraduates with the tools, information, and resources necessary to actively participate in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, support community and nation-building, raise awareness of social issues, and work with others to lead change.

Participants of the YLDP go through self-paced courses developed on the programme’s three pillars: leadership, active citizenship and community/sustainable development group mentorship sessions with expert social innovators and change makers who will guide them as they implement impactful change projects, inter-school debates on national issues, funded community change projects, and virtual learning sessions to develop their mindsets and equip them to be the change agents the country needs.

The Youth Leadership Development Programme will help young people become contributing members of society and empower young people to actively engage in addressing issues of national concern while fostering peer-to-peer learning and community building.

The Programme achieves this goal by offering 2 separate tracks for young people: Sustainability and Advocacy.
