LEAP Africa was established in 2002 based on two convictions. First – that Africa desperately needed a new generation of visionary, ethical, creative and disciplined servant leaders and second – that a small group of people who shared the same vision could work together to change their communities, countries and indeed the world.
Since its inception, LEAP has pioneered leadership, civics, ethics, governance and succession training programmes for youth, business owners, civil society and the public sector. Through Youth LEAP, we have trained youth, teachers and practitioners across Africa. The change projects launched by our youth as a prerequisite for completing the programme have impacted over 200,000 people in communities across Nigeria. Many of our alumni are celebrated leaders across Nigeria, and we are extremely excited about the roles that are playing in shaping Africa’s future.
