Summary

Future Readiness Tour plans to equip 4000 teenagers in 20 public secondary schools across Lagos state, Nigeria with 10 future skills stipulated by the World Economic Forum to give them the edge needed to build a future for themselves. Through access to professional mentoring, design thinking training and resources (coding, digital fabrication) to build solutions to the problems in their community, these young people are empowered to take on the future.

Challenge

Recent Human Development Index rankings, Nigeria ranked 157 out of 189 with very little investment in education, the implication of which school completion rate and quality of learning is very low. Consequently, many young people are not adequately prepared for the future, are prone to becoming idle and propagating social vices. School failed to channel their enthusiasm and energy into skills that help them build a future by themselves. This project will affect 4000 teenagers in public schools.

Solution

We will select 200 under-performing teenagers in 20 public secondary schools who are at the risk of dropping out. They will be trained during the school tours on the 2022 soft skills listed by the World Economic Forum using the design thinking approach. Then we will work with them on a weekly basis in a club where they would be taught to build prototypes of solutions they generate, acquire digital fabrication skills. High-performing teens would be given internship opportunity.

Long-Term Impact

Working directly with the 4000 students in the first phase of the project, will create a network of young people who will want more for their lives, equipped and inspired to complete their education, access opportunities in the technology space and earn a good income. This will have a ripple effect on their peers who their progress would equally inspire them to stay in school.
