Youth Leadership

Why Attend

The more young people grow into well-educated adults with fewer dependants and new opportunities to acquire wealth, savings and purchasing power, the more they will be able to accelerate economic growth and development. It is estimated the African continent could add up to about $500 billion per year to its economy for as many as 30 years. There are clear steps that can help countries achieve a demographic dividend. Increasing investment in young people is key. This includes promoting quality education that prepares them for future opportunities. A “diversity of training will be needed.
