Takeaways from today's episode:

  • Building capacity and skills is an effective way to address the vulnerability of young people in Africa, it builds their confidence to thrive.
  • Systemic impact is achieved through policy change, advocacy and investing in the lives of young people who can invest back into their communities.
  • Our niche lies in the ability to take the voices of engaged millennials and address social issues. Young people understanding their place in society, understand they can trigger change.
  • An empowered youth is able to communicate their needs, identify their strengths and showcase their skills and talent through giving back.
  • Mentorship of youth should encompass understanding stakeholders, application of etiquette in the work environment and effective communication with important partners.
  • Remember to speak up, participate, pay it forward.
