The virtual program provided an enabling environment for these young minds to learn from experienced leaders, share ideas with successful digital entrepreneurs and changemakers.

With an attendance of over 30 participants from Zoom and Facebook Live Stream. In the course of the program, participants underwent a 2-week thorough and intensive training sessions on self-awareness, vision boarding, goal setting, critical thinking, and ethics to mention but a few.

These sessions yielded a positive impact as manifested in the feedback we received.

I will like to thank iKapture for this wonderful program that they put together, for the past few weeks while I was a part of this training, we have been taught many topics and skills, and some of these include time management, web design, critical thinking stimulation, and Robotics and Drone making and they were the highlight for me. Thanks to this program and the facilitators, my passion for computer and software have once again been re-ignited. – Nnamdi Okorie. YLEAD Class of 2021

From the past few weeks, I have learned a lot from the program, the facilitators, and even my co-participants. Every session meant something and struck something in me, especially the session on Ethics and Values. I learned to balance my ethics and values with other people’s ethics and value. I learned the importance of setting smart goals to be a 21st Century Youth. – Priscilla Williams. YLEAD Class of 2021
