Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
My vision is tied around 2 key elements, promoting policies that aid the adoption of education beyond the classroom and encouraging young people to develop essential life, soft and workplace skills through volunteering experience
It's all part of making a better world.
In the world today, there are so many young people caged in their minds because they do not have the required guidance to birth that new skill and idea. As interesting and enlightening as classroom knowledge is, everyone deserves an opportunity to put their minds to test. Mentorship and volunteering opportunities avail young people this. Ensuring more people are taking this option is the goal.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be first felt by youths in Nigeria with a large effect on the workforce and economy of the country as more youths develop the right skills needed to scale through unemployment after education because they harnessed volunteering and mentorship opportunities even with classroom education
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Emergence of decisive youths with the right skills to stand any phase of life
Reduction of Unemployment
Better engagement between Private and Public sectors to mitigate unemployment rates
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
First check would be a reduction in the number of those tagged unemployable in Nigeria particularly fresh graduates. Also, the number of young people connected with volunteering opportunities and the skills harnessed in the phase will be monitored through surveys
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
