YEC-Academy to host Creative Youth Exhibition in Ibadan

This year's CREATIVE YOUTH EXHIBITION which has been scheduled to hold on Saturday, 19th January 2013 at Alliance Francaise, by Iyagankun Police Station, Iyaganku, Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, will unveil to the Ibadan community and the world at large a new set of young creative entrepreneurs in the field of photography, shoe-making and ICT, with special focus on the first-set of graduands from the just concluded YEC-Academy's 8-weeks free vocational training programme held at Ibadan North-West Local Government, Onireke, Dugbe, Ibadan, Oyo State.

YEC-Academy was launched in 2012 as a vocational training project by four CYFI Fellows with initial funding support from the U.S. Consulate General Lagos (through the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative program) and with additional funding from Joan Agha Foundation coupled with the endorsement as well as provision of hall facility by the Ibadan North-West Local Government. So far, over forty-five (45) young people have acquired basic practical skills in Photography, Shoe-making and ICT as a result of the free sponsored program.

What the exhibition primarily stands to do is to showcase and help to promote these young and empowered Nigerians as they step into the world of value creation and financial freedom.
