RNYF is a game changer. In 2010, I had the honour of volunteering for the Akure session. That was a clear beginning of transformation in my life. After my encounter with RNYF, my business grew exponentially, got on several media platforms, got nominated for the Future Awards prize in Agriculture, won the title of Nigeria’s Champion for the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, and many other significant things. Today, I am proud to be associated with the growth and progress of RISE and will do everything to inspire other young people that I come across.

The RNYF is and always has been for me a great opportunity to serve and contribute to youth development in Nigeria. Been a volunteer leader for such a long time, in Lagos and other states of Nigeria where this great movement has been to, presented me with the unique experience of working with a Sister and Mentor, Toyosi Akerele as well as the hundreds of young volunteers i met and worked with over those years. If time and chance permits me again, i won’t hesitate to be a part of the family again.

Ogbonna Victory - Federal University of Technology, Owerri
My journey to becoming an entrepreneur started in 2009 when I attended the Benin Session of the Annual Rise National Youth Forum where I met with the Founder of Rise Networks.
Having communicated and noticed some outstanding qualities in the young leader, I was inspired by her testimony and decided to focus on my dreams and like they say…. THE REST IS HISTORY.
Nosa Solomon Ehigiamusoe (Edo State) – CEO, Final Lap Events
My participation since 2008 in the annual RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM has greatly impacted on my life and career goals. For me, it was beyond attending the event as I enjoyed the privilege to serve on the team with other promising young people and volunteers in ensuring the success of the Youth Forum in various states in Nigeria. Working on the 2008 and 2009 RNYF Team Inspired me and gave me the courage to champion the first Lagos State Teens and School Leavers Summit which was held on the 12th of December, 2009 at the Faculty of Education, University of Lagos. This Milestone as a teenager in 2009 and my subsequent editions of the RNYF has helped me to attain greater feats and given me the tool to create the life of my dream today as an emerging Global Social Entrepreneur.
Gbemisola Osadua (Ondo State) - CEO, DYNAMICS IMPACT
The Rise National Youth Forum which was brought to my school by Rise Networks taught me how to be a personal enterprise, how to start my own business and the importance of Mentorship.

It is with great delight and humility, that I write my RISE Experience over the last six (6) years of my encounter with the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM (RNYF) in Lagos and Ogun State.
In September 2009, I was opportune to serve as a volunter for the RNYF in Abeokuta, with that single act since 2009 till date, Rise Group has Instilled in me the spirit of volunteerism within and outside my immediate community. RISE NETWORKS under the able mentorship of Mrs. Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji, has been able to alter my MINDSET and as well galvanize my ENERGIES towards hardwork, leadership and the power of synergy.
