Hope we are doing well. Here is what we have planned ahead of the International Youth Day: bit.ly/engagenaijayouth
We’d like the whole house to get involved. Chances are that if this issue does not affect you, it affects your relative or loved one who is unemployed, at home on a boring 3 months holiday, or even thrown into idleness due to the prevailing and enduring strike action by ASUU. It would be great if we can see more and more innovative solutions around youth engagements and bring already existing, effective ones to light and acceptability!
Wouldn’t you like that there are easily accessible opportunities to work remotely from your phone/home for a project outsourcing platform or be engaged often in volunteering programmes or learn about meaningful associations and groups you can join or take up a holiday or quarter-day job or be accepted on a work shadowing programme to experience a week in the life of your role model? The possibilities are endless but these avenues to career enhancement are not exactly the norm in Nigeria. We don’t need to have to know somebody that knows somebody that is a friend or uncle to somebody that can help us get ahead in our career.
