THE PROBLEM

Here's the tricky thing about the world of work.

Most young people are doing everything they know to get a job. But finding the right opportunities that unlock one's full potential can be extremely challenging. This is why.

01

Traditional education is not enough

If you are one of the millions of young Africans whose education didn't provide the skills, opportunities, or networks relevant for getting a job in 2021 and beyond, the truth is this: you're not alone.

02

75% of jobs are not advertised

While 80% of jobs are occupied by word of mouth. That means the opportunities you're really looking for are not always searchable online or on job boards.

03

The focus is rarely on impact

It's one thing to find a job, and another thing to start a career that speak directly to who you are and what matters to you.

WHERE WE COME IN

You're not alone.

We're here to help you go further as you start your career.

You need to get the skills, opportunities, mindset, and experiences that make you employable.

Here's why we are investing in you.
