The Chat Bot is integrated into our website and adopts Facebook Messenger as its platform to engage its users in conversations who are mainly undergraduates, Nigeria Youth Corpers, unemployed/underemployed Graduates and working professionals.

Ise leverages AI/Machine Learning methodologies of Natural Language Processing/Natural Language Understanding of Deep Learning and Algorithms from queries received and data fed to it by humans (users) to help them search for Jobs, inform them about new & open job opportunities and coaches them for interviews. It was developed under strict supervision and it’s adherent to international best practice. Its Beta testing Phase has proved that the bot can handle several complex conversations

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.

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.

I was privileged to know about RISE when they came to Kaduna in October 2010 for the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM event usually done nationwide. Since that encounter, I was really surprised that here in Nigeria we have such an organization wheeled at impacting the lives of Nigerian Youths through Technology, Education, Management Skills, Motivational Messages and Books, Media e.t.c. I wanted to be a part of the mission and vision so I ensured I got the opportunity to meet with Toyosi and was blessed and I ended up becoming a volunteer rep in Kaduna. I fortunately spearheaded the #BringBackTheBook initiative in NTA KADUNA which touched so many lives here in Kaduna and a great success nationwide.

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.

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.

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.
