Class of 2017 YELP Experience
Leadership is critical especially for young people. They are the leaders of tomorrow but without being taught the fundamentals, without knowing where our forefathers failed and what we can do better then, Africa will not rise. That is why fellowships like YELP help stir up a conversation on good leadership, it shifts the mind to see the reality on ground and help inspire the younger generation to reach out; to be better citizens and step up to take up roles in the community for the betterment of our society.
