Crafting Careers, Shaping Futures

Our undertaking is a bold and visionary mission that extends far beyond the realms of conventional education. We have set our sights on transforming the lives of 10 Million Youths across the vast and diverse landscape of Africa within the upcoming 4 years. This ambitious initiative is not merely about imparting knowledge; it is a comprehensive effort to instill practical skills, nurture resilience, and carve out tangible pathways toward sustainable employment.
Africa is home to the world's youngest and fastest-growing population, with over 60% of its citizens under the age of 35. This youthful demographic represents a vast reservoir of untapped potential and a driving force for Africa's economic growth. However, many African youths lack the skills, attitude and knowledge they need to successfully transition into the workforce, have a fruitful professional career and contribute effectively to the growth of their companies and communities.
That's where AFRES, the African Youth Employability Skills Programme, comes in. AFRES is a groundbreaking collaboration between Youtherium, a leading provider of youth development programmes, and The Strategic Centre (The SC), a UK-registered organisation focused on initiating and leading strategic multinational partnerships and building successful consortiums for joint Academic, Research, HR Development and Training, focused on advancing Africa's development.
