The Parliament will seek to build on challenges and triumphs as key ingredients in involving young people in the future of Africa.

African Youth Centre of Excellence

Our short term goal is to create a Youth Centre of Excellence to encourage visionary, informed and inspired leadership amongst young people. Acting as a platform for education, training and grooming of Africa’s reservoir of capable leaders, the Centre is aligned with our goals to ‘educate, empower and inspire the leaders of the future.’

Hosted as part of the Youth Centre of Excellence, we intend to build a library and database with curated resources for training young people in practical leadership principles to become responsible future leaders. Whilst our library will conduct and publish research into topical and current issues affecting the young generation of Africa as well as provide resources on how to combat them, our database will provide useful information to students, young people and teachers for academic purposes.
