Starting from January 2024, we aim to empower 640 young individuals (students, young professionals, and job seekers), aged 18-30 (35 for women), from Yaoundé and across the nation.

This first edition will focus on 160 youths from all over the country.

Program Highlights:

  • Climate Change Awareness: Hands-on programming to expand understanding of environmental and climate change challenges.
  • Media Literacy: Workshops to increase critical thinking and media literacy skills, helping participants identify misinformation and examine media stories’ potential interests.

Our program is not just about skill development; it’s about nation-building. We believe in the power of youth to bring about positive change and are committed to providing them with the tools they need to succeed. Special consideration will be given to women and people from underserved communities. Join us in shaping the future of Cameroon.
