2023 LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Programme for Nigerian Students

Young Nigerian undergraduates between the ages of 18 and 30 can participate in the 5-month LEAP Africa Youth Leadership Programme, which aims to give them the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to become transformative leaders and engaged citizens who will promote sustainable development in their communities.

When young Nigerians took control of the protest to push for the Nigeria they want, the Youth Leadership Development Programme (YLDP) was formed out of their capacity to use their agency and power to bring about constructive change.
