Investing in Today's Leaders!!


It is often said that “The youth are the Leaders of tomorrow”, but with the recent spike in cultism, militancy, fraud, and get rich quick schemes, there is an urgent need for intervention.
Most blame the government for not creating the youth opportunities or they blame the parents for shirking their responsibilities

Maybe, the proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child” has been forgotten. The truth is, everyone has a role to play in the development of the next generation of leaders.
Yes! They may be Tomorrow’s leaders, but we need to start preparing them for leadership now!!

How?
Every year, @kirfoundation organizes the Inclusive Young Leadership Academy(YLA), a one-day leadership workshop, designed to train newly elected Senior Secondary School prefects
Since 2014, we have trained 545 school prefects as emerging young leaders that are driving positive change in their various schools through service.

 This year, we will build the capacity of three (3) newly elected prefects each from thirty (30) secondary schools (public, private and special) in Rivers State.
You can also invest in today’s leaders today by sponsoring a student with a copy of the ‘Young Leader’s Guide’ which is a leadership manual for building leadership skills in youth.
