The African youth mentorship project is an initiative of Primacy Youth Development Initiative. Leveraging young mentors and outreach coordinators from 11+ African countries, the project aims to reach over 1000 young people in secondary schools across Africa with career guidance and mentorship. Through this support, young Africans at a critical development stage will be able to make more informed career choices and reduce widespread unemployment and underemployment.
In August 2023, international youth month and prior to school commencing, each country will host an event as part of a physical symposium, titled “Building Young leaders, with Technological, and Entrepreneurial skills for the Advancement of the African region” for students to hear about the work being done and how they can be involved.
