JCI set to hold mentorship, entrepreneurship drive




In a bid to ensure that its members are empowered, enlightened and are on the right track to take on their career and passion, the Junior Chambers International (JCI) Ikeja Chapter has churned out a series of activities to set the year in motion.
According to the president of the club, Mr. Oluwatosin Ligali: “We are kicking off the year with an innovation and enterprise seminar. We are looking at the need for more start-ups and entrepreneurs in the society, we want to inspire young business owners and start-ups to increase the gross domestic product of our nation.”
Ligali said that the seminar would be attended by many youths drawn from the JCI, youth organisations and other prominent Nigerians.
“The aim of the seminar is to re-engineer the mind-sets of the youths towards productivity, inculcate and promote leadership values among others.
“Another is the ‘Coffee with the CEO’, which is a mentorship program where we have a coffee meeting with a top executive or an entrepreneur who will share his wealth of experience with young entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.”
He said that at JCI, they believe in building the personality before building the community: “We first empower our members through the various programmers and then we channel to the community. We also have the ‘Tech Academy’, which is a programming and coding booth camp for young students within ages 13- 17 to teach them the basics of programming and coding through real world and hands on software development training for a month.”
