The Innovate Africa project is an African focused youth development program of the YouthUp Global movement in line with the African Development Bank ‘Boost Africa’ Project. We collaborate with innovative brands and individuals in Africa to equip African youths with the 21st century skills required to build sustainable businesses and to grow in various professional endeavours. Our focus is to build the right human capital with the right mindset and love for the continent as part of our strategy to curb the problem of Unemployment in Africa. We are against the increasing rate of brain-drain in Africa to other parts of the world.. We believe that African youths will develop Africa, and as such we can’t afford to lose our active population to migration out of Africa. In response to this, the Innovate African Project has series of programs and projects that are geared towards developing African Youths with innovative mindset. These Innovative African projects comes in form of Capacity Building Workshops, Tech Driven Business Programs and Apprentiship Programs.
