Young Reformers Network

We developed a Young Reformers Programme (YRP), to raise a workforce of individuals who can work deliberately towards the urgently needed reform in Nigeria; and in the long term across Africa. The YRP programme was a transformational fellowship programme for young people ages 21-35 who are committed to impacting specific sectors of the Nigerian economy.

We believe that many young people passionate about societal development and reform in Nigeria have zeal and energy but often lack the requisite knowledge and professional expertise to achieve desired sustainable impact.

This programme was designed to operate as a CSR project for IA. Through IA’s internal evaluation and reflection, we came to the realisation that the principles behind the YPR was at the centre of IA’s mandate. This reflection necessitated the emergence of IA’s current flagship programme, the Reform Entrepreneur Programme.

Through the YRP programme, vibrant and passionate individuals are trained and prepared to become capable reformers to impact Nigeria’s development as well as to sustain development attained for future generations.

Our first two sets in 2013/14 and 2014/15 respectively focused on the Education Sector. The new Reform Entrepreneur Programme will focus on health, education and governance.
