About Us

The Youth Alive Foundation, established in 2017, is an entrepreneurship and professional development oriented organization, formed to promote and cultivate the spirit of entrepreneurship among the youth. Given the extent to which the world of work is constantly evolving, there has never been more important to empower, harness and instill vital leadership skills, entrepreneurship and innovation education to the youth. The premise that a college certification or qualification will ensure job security is only mirage, and the staggeringly high rate of global youth unemployment, proves this point.

At Youth Alive Foundation, our programs allow for variety interactive seminars, mentorship programs, workshops, business simulation activities and boot camps.
