Papito commented on Youth Leadership Conferences

As the founder of PaaMoja Initiative, a partner of JUMP Foundation and organizer of JLC (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz25G8pDO9U) in Nairobi this June, I have to say this model has a lot of potential to help youth from under-served communities look at challenges as opportunities. It goes without saying that the youth have a lot of energy but it has to be directed in the right direction. Having ran a 2-day conference with the JLC model, which was characterised by open-space workshops, group discussions and presentations, site visits and access to experience mentors, I have to say that the model captures many angles that can help a young person to achieve his goals. I fully support this concept wholeheartedly and I hope to be part of another inspiring JLC conference come next year.
