Are you passionate about Education reform in Nigeria? Do you have great ideas on how the educational sector can be fixed? Do you just want to make a difference but you lack the education knowledge or professional expertise to achieve your desired impact?
Incubator Africa presents the YPP and YRP education fellowship programs.
Incubator Africa is a development agency operating within the African continent. Our goal is to build a workforce of individuals who can work towards the urgently needed reform in the Nigerian education sector. The Young Professionals Program (YPP) and Young Reformers Program (YRP) are transformational training programs for youth who are committed to changing the Nigerian Education Sector for the better.
Young Professionals’ Program (1 year program) – These Individuals will work in existing organizations and receive guided training from Incubator Africa after 6 months of intense training. The comprehensive training includes module sessions on Education Consulting, Teaching and Advocacy for reform work. These young fellows will also learn about education in Nigeria with like-minded individuals. A stipend will be paid during the course of the program.
On the other hand, the Young Reformers’ Program (YRP) provides individuals the preparation to move their current education initiatives to the next level without a one year commitment. The YRP program will expose individuals already planning or implementing change projects to the knowledge and skills required for successful change. YRP Fellows will participate in Incubator Africa’s training modules that will be taught over 6 months (The cost per module is N10, 500 each for 4 modules).
Preferred candidates for the fellowship program are individuals who have demonstrated their potential to be change agents. Applicants can come from any sector of society – business, government or civil society.
