Here is a unique professional development opportunity to gain new innovation skills online with your peers from around the world. From April 22nd through June 3rd, 2016, a select group of program managers, policy makers, fellows and innovators from diverse backgrounds will come together in an online course titled “The Future of Work in Africa: Innovations in Youth Employment”, designed by Ashoka and MasterCard Foundation as part of the Future Forward partnership. See 2015 Ashoka Changemaker Scholars Alumni Directory and 2015 Course Training Report.
Future Forward supports social entrepreneurs and changemakers implementing innovative solutions to youth employment in sub-Saharan Africa. The initiative also convenes a wider community of practitioners, thought leaders and young Africans who help spread insights and approaches that shift the conversation from problems to solutions. We urge you to join us as we create new connections and generate new ideas for developing a future of work that can advance the social economic status of Africa’s young people.

The goal of the course is to give innovators like yourself more tools, strategies and networks to accelerate social impact through collaborations for youth employment. As a true innovator in that space, we think you’ll be able to offer a valuable perspective to fellow participants. We believe your input and your voice are critical in this ongoing conversation and we would be honored to have you engage on this subject with us.
This is an exclusive opportunity – interested individuals must apply on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, and will be vetted on criteria related to their capacity for youth employment innovation.
