In an effort to engage and draw out the inherent potential in the Nigerian youth, and adapt them to the changing economic realities in the country presently, the Catholic Youth Organisation of Nigeria (CYON) of the Catholic Church of Ascension in conjunction with the Centre for Media Development is organizing Youth Empowerment Seminar(YES).

The seminar which is the maiden edition is tagged Building Responsive Youths in a Challenging Economy and boasts of such entrepreneurs as Mrs. Ifeoma Ndiolo-Enaholo and Mr. Azuka Ijekeye who would take the youths on a journey aimed at resetting their mindset.

The Seminar will hold on September 3, 2016 at the Catholic Church of Ascension Parish Hall, Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road, Ikeja Lagos and would among others teach the youth how to prepare a business plan, proposal and how to defend such in multinationals.

It would also teach them how to prepare their curriculum vitae to go with the current trend of things.

According to the CYON CCOA president, Daniel Ahize, presently things are going sideways and for the youth to actually get on the right track it is important to get training that would impact their life and have a positive effect on them.

Ahize who is also the Seminar Committee Chairman said that the second lecture would be given by an accomplished entrepreneur, Mr Azuka Ijekeye, who manages his owns business enterprises passionately and effortlessly,  as a result of years of hard work and experience and innovation in his area of specialization.

“The goal of the seminar is to position participants well and give them an edge above their peers in present day Nigeria. As a follow-up to the seminar, the youth body intends to establish an ‘Entrepreneur Series’ a mini set of interaction engagement, mini seminars aimed at enlightening, empowering and mentoring the next generation of start-ups who would translate their business ideas into reality”

“Inspired by the words of Mahatma Gandhi,’You must be the change you wish to see in the word’. We hope to inspire, revolutionize and positively change the mindset of the Nigerian youth to the opportunities right in front of them.”
