Young People Connect

Young People Connect is a platform that seeks to connect the dots between professional/graduate qualifications with an individual's skills set. The YPC was initiated after a thoughtful and detailed study which revealed that many young people, especially undergraduates and recent graduates, do not understand the importance of possessing vocational and soft skills in today's world. Many are focused on bagging a degree and getting a white collar job. Only very few possess skill but they are fed with the challenge of combining their skills or trade with the rigors of a typical institution of higher learning in Nigeria.


To inspire young people, engage and create a platform to maximize and build skills and professionalism.


To be the leading Community where young entrepreneurs, youth leaders, change makers, young professionals, idea merchants or thought leaders, young innovators/inventors come together in order to solve societal problems, reduce unemployment and empower other young people to succeed. This will be achieved through skill acquisition programs, workshops as well as conferences.
