This program is one of LEAP Africa’s premier innovations, and it is solely targeted at refining the talents in young graduates. It is a well-structured 12 months post-NYSC on-the-job training experience, with hands-on supervisory mentorship that builds the young graduate’s key strengths, equipping them with the capacity to create positive and lasting impact in communities across Africa. Hence the skills gap between school learning and practical real-world implementation will be bridged by this program.
