In a country like ours where the present youthful population [millennials] are only fixated on white collar jobs that are virtually non-existent, some are already positioning themselves to be a part of the bigger picture. This people have taken the first baby steps towards laying the right foundation for the dream that will define the world’s development and secure the future.
These people have gone past merely mouthing the “Future of Tomorrow” maxim, which by the way has become hypnotic in effect; slung by politicians, motivational speakers and life coaches alike. These people have decided not to merely swim in life’s current but dictate the tides!
The RISE National Youth programme has helped me to achieve self – discovery. Thank you RISE Networks.
RNYF 6 (OGUN SESSION)
When I learnt that RISE Networks was coming to town, I knew I had to be there. I was inspired by the story of Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu. I have started my small business as a livestock farmer. Thanks RISE Networks for looking out for Nigerian Youths
RNYF 6 (OWERRI SESSION)
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.
I learnt what it takes to be empowered. The speakers took turns to educate us on the need for us to build our capacity. I came out a better person than I went in. Thanks to the RISE Team.
RNYF 6 (BENIN SESSION)
Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen’s story was the high point of that memorable event for me. I was touched and inspired by his experience in the Movie Industry. Thank you RISE Networks for such a wonderful experience. Skill is Definitely King.
RNYF 6 (BENIN SESSION)
The RISE Networks event was filled with seasoned speakers who had rich content to share with us. It was a mind blowing and revealing session for me. I realised that Nigeria as a country is blessed with so much resources and it is high time for the youths of this great nation to look beyond oil and embrace other sectors of the economy as the way forward.
RNYF 6 (ABIA SESSION)
RISE National Youth Forum 2014 taught me that the future of Nigeria lies with entrepreneurship.
RNYF 6 (ABIA SESSION)
I want to say a big thank you to RISE Networks for educating us that Knowledge Is Not Enough, Skill Is King.
RNYF 6 (EKITI SESSION)
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.
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.
