New Era Foundation, Ladol Integrated Logistics to Train Youths


Towards grooming future leaders through skills and knowledge, the New Era Foundation, (NEF) a social enterprise founded for youth development and women empowerment, is organising a youth leadership training program, tagged: “Friendship, Inspiration, Training (FIT).

The training is in partnership with LADOL Integrated Logistics Enterprise (LILE). The program commences on December 19th and runs through to December 22nd, 2012, at the prestigious New Era Youth Camp in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.

The training which would greatly strengthen the social, ethical, emotional and cognitive competencies of the participants will have youth of between 16-30 years drawn from past winners of the NEF Spelling Bee, who now form the peer-mentoring group, known as the Council of One Day Governors (CODG). The ultimate prize for winners of the NEF Spelling Bee is to serve as the state governor for a day, hence the name, CODG. They would be joined by the competition’s winners from Ogun state, as well as awardees of Senator Oluremi Tinubu’s Lagos Central Senatorial District Scholarship Scheme.

“Our youths require training assistance in developing vital leadership and personal skills. It is very key to expose them to programmes that will give them fundamental skills as well as general knowledge and information that will uplift their confidence”, Mr Yemi Osilaja, New Era Foundation, Executive Director explained.

In her comments, The Managing Director, LADOL Integrated Logistics Enterprise, Dr Amy Jadesimi said, “We support initiatives that promote key aspects of the youth development process that schools and communities are unable to provide. We are excited to partner with New Era Foundation on the FIT program as it gives us the platform to contribute towards providing the enabling environment that supports a positive and effective youth and leadership development process.”
