Description

The Summit

This platform seeks to build bridges among service leaders from government, the private sector, developmental partners and NGOs, and to foster an information exchange on increasing the role of citizens within member states in problem solving towards sustainable development.

This summit aims to serve as a platform to facilitate knowledge sharing, and transfer and help stakeholders leverage on both local and international expertise in the attainment of sustainable development.

Harnessing the next generation of ethical leaders will be critical if achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals is to be possible – they bring fresh perspectives, open minds, different values, tech savviness, and an appetite for disruption; mentorship and volunteerism is a catalyst in reaching these end.

The Awards:

Seek to recognize companies that demonstrate that mentoring and volunteering is a key strategy for connecting young people to social and economic opportunities and leads to a stronger 21st-century workforce

Mandate:

The African youth become more responsible and accountable to their peers and authority

That the youth are empowered in all knowledge and skills necessary to help the developmental agenda of the continent

To ensure that policy on mentorship is applied by all stakeholders
