The COVID-19 pandemic era has revealed that there is a greater need for youths to take advantage of the growing pace of modern technology to emerge as digitalized leaders and entrepreneurs. To that end, iKapture Centre for Development – a non-profit organization – developed the 12th edition of Youths Leadership. Entrepreneurship, and Development (YLEAD) Virtual Fellowship program to “up” the “skills” of youths in the modern era making them equip digitally to assume any leadership role in any corporate organization or as entrepreneurs.

The 12th edition of the 2022 YLEAD Virtual Fellowship program was tagged “Upskill” and was proudly sponsored by BlankPaperz Media. This 4-week program commenced on the 7th of November, 2022 and spanned to the 2nd of December, 2022. There was a total of 20 eligible international participants holding from 10 different countries including Nigeria, Zambia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Indonesia, Cameroon, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, and Kenya.

The 2022 YLEAD Virtual Fellowship program provided for young scholars to interact with and learn from the experiences of successful digital leaders and entrepreneurs. The program kick-started with an opening remark given by Mrs Juliet Inyang, Former Executive Director, iKapture Centre for Development. Following this was a notable Keynote Address titled ‘Upskilling in a Digital Era’ by Mirabelle Morah, Founder of BlankPaperz. This keynote address was listened in to by 20 participants who connected to the virtual program via the Zoom conference meeting.

For the first two weeks of the program, the attendees were taken through a thorough and intensive drill on team building and emotional intelligence, vision boarding, critical thinking and problem solving, toxic traits, goal setting, communication skills and etiquette, SEO content and copywriting skills, robotics and drone creation to mention but a few. The next two weeks were for the participants to put into practice what they had learned through the internship.
