The Annual Youth Education & Empowerment Summit is the first ever international youth focus summit on education and will be the first international youth gathering hosted in Liberia. The summit is a platform to discuss challenges in the Education Sector and the role of young people in reimagining education through the means of innovation, social enterprise development and creativity. The summit provides an opportunity for young African leaders to collaborate, share best practices and challenge their thinking during interactive Plenary Sessions and Debates. Focus Sessions highlight innovative practices or projects, along with Workshops to facilitate collaboration on specific issues in Education. And finally; the summit will bring together the brightest students, youth activists, Leaders in society, entrepreneurs, professors and businessman to start a dialogue on the implications of a broken education system in Africa and what can be done about it.
Have you ever wondered if Africa will produce generational leaders that will rise up to change the destiny of Continent? Or have you thought about reimagining education for Africa using the modern day technologies?
Our Summit will help you understand the many facets of this very important issue in our daily lives. The project focuses on delivering the information and providing youth the opportunity to come up with new tools and creative means to solve those challenges.
In collaboration with our partner, Resource Alliance, Ghana, we will introduce to our participants to a strategic business management simulation which will test and improve their management, leadership and decision making skills as they prepare to change the story of Africa. The Simulation is based on a realistic business situation in which a number of virtual companies, represented by the teams taking part, compete against one another in a common business environment. A sophisticated and comprehensive computer model simulates the interactions of the various parts of each company, the competitive relationships between the companies and the background economic situation.
The Summit will be welcoming over 100 participants from across Africa and other parts of the world to Monrovia, Liberia for a three (3) days impactful and insightful summit.
