Working together to develop the next generation of African leaders


Why become a partner

The school-to-work transition is not often a smooth one, especially for young Africans who face a higher rate of unemployment compared to their counterparts in developed economies.

Over the last decade, we have partnered with employers, universities, and other institutions who see the value in accelerating the career pathways of young people and address the continent’s most pressing challenges.

  • Boost your workforce hiring a young leader as an intern or as a full time member of your team;
  • Take advantage of the innovative and fresh perspective of younger generations to solve your organizational challenges; and
  • Promote your commitment to the continent by offering invaluable work experience to young, talented Africans.
