Call for Applications: LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Development Programme 2023 | up to N1.5 Million

The LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Development Programme 2023 is currently accepting applications. By giving Nigerian students under the age of 30 the knowledge, skills, and encouraging atmosphere necessary for them to become self-leaders who bring sustainable change to their communities, the Youth Leadership Development Programme aims to empower, equip, and assist young change leaders.

The Youth Leadership Programme has never been more important given the current issues facing Africa, particularly those relating to leadership, civic engagement, and sustainable development as Nigeria gets closer to an election year.

22 modules make up the Youth Leadership Development Program, which is built around the three program pillars of leadership, active citizenship, and sustainable/community development. In order to fill the gaps in leadership, active citizenship, and sustainable/community development, the courses have been carefully created and adjusted to match the present challenges facing young people in Nigeria. The courses will assist in giving the learners the knowledge, abilities, and attitudes required to become real change agents who drive social change and have an impact on policy change.

LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Development Programme 2023 Programme Pathways

The Youth Leadership Development Programme will take on two pathways this year; the Sustainability pathway and the Advocacy pathway.

  • The Youth Leadership Programme (Sustainability Pathway) addresses the need to educate, strengthen, support, and enable young people in Nigeria for leadership, activism, and social change through outcome-driven policy engagements and inclusive resourcing that will support youth in shaping and supporting medium and long-term national development.
  • Intercampus Leadership Debates (Advocacy Pathway) provides an avenue to reawaken student activism in Nigeria, demystify what leadership means, inspire active citizenship, and support them in collectively articulating their visions of the future while catalyzing pathways for them to decisively participate in that future themselves. This will be done through nationwide leadership debates.
