Second batch of YouthMobile trainees in Nigeria to graduate in October 2017

The second batch of YouthMobile Project trainees in Abuja, Nigeria will graduate on October 30, 2017. The program, organized by the United Nation’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Federal Capital Territory Administration, provided youth with opportunities to build experience on digital skills and leveraging the potential of their smartphones as learning tools.

Through the program, youth learn about computer science and programming, problem solving and real-life technology applications. One of its main characteristics is that it makes an emphasis on mobile technologies to empower youth to communicate, learn, take pictures and play games.

YouthMobile is expected to generate economic development through youth employment and entrepreneurship. According to Mr Akindayo Akindolani, the Managing Consultant and a facilitator of the program, “the training will keep the youth off the streets because they will earn a living by marketing the acquired skills.”
