Awards: What awards or honors has your solution received, if any?

in October 2014, our program was identified by the UNFPA country office and the Ministry of Youth as one of youth initiatives that needs to be scalled up. We were granted 3500 USD for scale up.

Tell us about your partnerships

We are partnering with ExxonMobil through their Women Economical Empowerment program. This is a strategic partnership as there are a lot of mining company who are investing in the country but with a weak CSR program, so by demonstrating how we impact malagasy people live's using support from ExxonMobil we will incentivise other private company to invest with us.
The Ministry of Youth and the UNFPA as major guardian for youth programming as been identify for political support and local ownership of the program. Our program was identified by these two organisations as a youth initiative that needs to be scalled up.
The US Embassy was embarked on board for institutional reason. As a youth led organisation we needed as much institution who can validate our program and linking our program to the US EMbassy leadership program insured national recognition of our program

Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?

So far our main challenge is to convince young women that they can improve their lives and can be leaders too. Our first batch of trainee were the greatest ambassador of the program, using social media, and traditional media, we are featuring stories to share the successes of the program and not only it has increased our network of support, future trainees but most importantly increase our list of prospective funders

How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?

NewCreation Global is a vision for developing and empowering entrepreneurs.We are changing that wrong mindset of seeking for corporate jobs immediately after graduation. All that you need to create wealth and be financially free is idea.We are focusing on education, entrepreneurship and empowerment.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

you take a bold step today to be a real entrepreneur!

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Young people in Nigeria has a mindset of searching for corporate jobs immediately after graduation from school because, our educational systems fail to build up the youth to become innovators and entrepreneurs thereby making the youth unemployable and without skills for innovation and entrepreneurship. This situation has led to youth unemployment, lack of job creation and development. There is no platform for entrepreneurship and new ventures.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

NewCreation Global is a vision for developing and empowering youth entrepreneurs through mentorship and training programs on entrepreneurship and new venture creation. The programs feature series of skill acquisition training especially in the area of fish farming (agriculture), ICTs, cosmetics and aggro-allied products. We are changing that wrong mindset of seeking for corporate jobs immediately after graduation.
New Creation Global is a platform for training and developing the youth to become real entrepreneurs equipping them with the skills and tools to becoming effective leaders of tomorrow.
We have also designed an empowerment plan/system that rewards every youth in our community as a network when recommending it to their friends.

What awards or honors has the project received?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Any youth enrolled into the NewCreation Global project is first trained on the essence of entrepreneurship & new venture creation. The training is first of all done online for 5 days and the participant is invited for a physical training on skill acquisition like production of hard and liquid soap, relaxer, bead making, fish farming, ICTs etc. After the training, the youth has to choose a business name to work with and then we register the proposed business name with the Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC) and then provide start up capital for the participant to start up a small and medium scale enterprise either in production or rendering services. We help to monitor and guide the youth through marketing, breaking even and sustainability.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Through the NewCreation Global project, we have over 1000 new entrepreneurs starting up small and medium scale industries/enterprises in the community. These new industries are growing such that people in the community are happy to use their products. It has changed the wrong mindset of the youth depending and searching for corporate jobs immediately after graduation. This has helped a lot in job creation and the rate of unemployment is reducing as the youth are learning new skills to be independent and creating businesses for themselves thereby turning out to be employers of labour. Through this project, youth are discovering their talent and passion for doing what they like yet becoming real entrepreneurs. In my community there are over 1000 small scale industries/enterprises springing up through this project and the rate of unemployment has reduced to 60% and we are forming networks.

Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward?

We are negotiating with stakeholders from other communities as part of our plans to expand to 5 communities before this year ends. We are also working on approval from the federal ministry of education to incorporate this project into secondary schools and tertiary educational system. We hope to raise 10,000 entrepreneurs with 10,000 small and medium scale enterprises/industries before the year 2020. We have also designed a system that rewards any participant/youth who recommends this project to their friends and love ones which ensures sustainability of the project.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

There is a little financial commitment of $100 -$200 as an enrollment fee into the program. We have built a system where every youth who has benefited from the project recommends the opportunity to their friends, family and others and as they do that, we reward them financially. This will enable more enrollment and sustainability of the project. We are also working on partnerships with stakeholders and NGOs.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Friends and family, Individuals, NGOs.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

NewCreation Global started as a result of the rate of youth unemployment in my community. Early this year, over 1000 youth died during the immigration job recruitment conducted by the immigration board in the country.The situation still remain in my memory today.I was also a victim as my dear cousin lost his life in the process and every year not less than 100,000 graduates are produced into the labour market yet there is no job for them. I wept bitterly for the loss of my dear cousin and I swore to take action so that such situation will never happen again. I made up my mind that I will never wait for anybody to employ me and so I started creating awareness about it. I move from school to school educating them to take action.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Our team is made up of 10 young people from different background and discipline taking roles.Our roles includes; The Executive director full time, Project manager and assistance full time, permanent secretary, community liaison officer and assistance, sustainability manager I& II, Publicity officers and project coordinators. We hope to expand our team and roles as we grow in future to include other roles like project supervisors and advisors.

Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?

The challenges of expanding this project to other communities in the country.
In overcoming this challenge, we have started negotiations with stakeholders in other communities for partnerships and support to extend this project to their communities.

How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?

NewCreation Global is changing the wrong mindset of the youth in our community seeking for corporate jobs immediately after graduation through our training and re-orientation programmes. With this platform, youth are being trained on how to start up any venture without waiting for corporate jobs. NewCreation Global trains the youth on how to produce cosmetics- liquid soap, perfumes, making of bread etc. It has helped the youth to start up small and medium scale enterprises within the community. The youth are engaged in starting up fish farms, pig farms and poultry.
NewCreation Global has created an enabling environment to showcase young entrepreneurs and promoting them by creating awareness for their products. With these innovations, jobs are being created and the rate of unemployment is gradually reducing as more youth become involve. The project has also provides empowerment for the youth to finance their skills or SMEs immediately after the training through our empowerment system. This system enable us to pay every youth 5 times in a month-every Friday and 1st of the month as they recommend this project to their friends and love ones thereby forming a network of young entrepreneurs which will aid in the sustainability of this project.
The numbers of small and medium scale enterprises/industries are increasing in my community thus leading to job creation and employment. And most importantly, the youth has started seeing the need to take action and go for entrepreneurship and new venture creation instead of waiting for people to employ them. The youth in my community are gradually becoming equal employers of labour.

How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?

My idea is simply helpful to all who are ready to create and have a bright future. Many young people lack skills and knowledge on how to set their future ahead of them...they thought taking drugs and living a miserable life is the solution to that. A business saying; lack of money is a serious sickness to somebody living today. It is true many want to pursue their career but they lack it, they want to start businesses but have nothing, want to marry or study, they want construct homeless home or take flight but without money they will never come to that. So, the only way is to find out the solution and the solution is through a such an idea: Micro-finance services, which will simply operate within the young people and with small interest or without interest, depending on capital set, Organization policies and resources available, funding agency requirements and other intervening factors such as Insurance and Government taxation. The Micro finance Services project will enable young people simply have an access to small or needed amount of money to start or expand their businesses, pursue their careers or professionals by purchasing equipments/items needed and even gain skills and knowledge required to perform a certain task. The project will also set some funds to stand for capacity building where the target group will receive trainings and education on relevant areas. The knowledge imparted gives young people direction, oversight, management skills and good married ideas for development.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Using the principles of ethical leadership and entrepreneurship, Jumpstart Academy Africa is teaching secondary school students 21st century skills so that they can innovate across different sectors. We teach students to be job creators as opposed to the old rhetoric of job seekers.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if youths across Africa could learn entrepreneurial leadership skills by the time they leave school?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Across Africa, students leave school without the basic learning skills that they, and their countries, desperately need to escape the gravitational pull of mass poverty. This explains why even though Africa is the most youthful continent in the world, 70% of the working-age population is unemployed.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Jumpstart Academy’s Adopt-A-School Program has 3 main components. First, a 2 year Leadership and Entrepreneurship training enables students to cultivate 21st century skills, with an emphasis on employment opportunities, enterprise creation, community engagement and civic responsibility. Second, Jumpstart Academy offers mentoring in which students are paired with university students and professionals who guide them through the transition from secondary to tertiary education environments and support through the challenges they face in starting enterprises and community initiatives as well as in their personal lives. Finally, tutoring sessions improve learning outcomes of students measured by performance at school and national examinations

What awards or honors has the project received?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Massa is a 17 year of old girl from Ndu - a rural area of Cameroon. She attends the main public school in the village. Like the rest of her peers, her routine is school and then home. When we started working with Massa, she had a low self esteem, no role model and was terrified of speaking in public. As part of our program, students are challenged and guided to take on several leadership and entrepreneurial initiative. The result was that Massa hosted a radio program where she educated the local community on social entrepreneurship and leadership. And with the guidance of her Mentor Fellow who she sees as role model, Massa became an inaugural Yale Young African Scholar and traveled to Ghana where she was able to deliver a speech in public

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

In less than a year, we have trained 220 young people from Cameroon and Nigeria. Our students are excelling in the areas of ethical leadership, civic engagement and entrepreneurship. One of our students, a 17 year old girl, became one of 50 young people across Africa selected to join the inaugural class of the Yale Young African Scholars program. JumpStart Academy was also recently nominated for the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition, an international contest sponsored by the Goi Peace Foundation, Stiftung Entrepreneurship and UNESCO.

Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward?

Our goal is to reach over 17,000 young people in the next 5 years and we have a strategic top down approach with a goal to advocate local government to incorporate components of our model into the national education system by 2020. We believe governments have a key role to play in transforming the education system and we are already building partnerships and networks with the local government. We have already had several meetings with the Commissioner of Education for Oyo State who has endorsed our work officially. One of our founders, Omotola Akinsola won the Think Oyo Under 30 Awards for

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Our operations are currently funded by individual donors and foundations.
The sustainability of our model will be based on ex-learners of Jumpstart Academy who gain entrance to tertiary institutions to return as Mentor Fellows.
Other strategic partnerships with secondary schools, local and international tertiary institutions and incubator programs which provide free access to venues, learning material and networks which reduces cost.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Individuals, Foundations, Businesses.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Other Leadership and Entrepreneurship training programs however the Jumpstart Academy Africa approach differs in its focus on practical learning and application through Jumpstart Academy Clubs in the schools where we work. The tutoring we provide includes a program to expose students to post secondary opportunities, and our mentorship program helps students easily transition to higher education or the workplace.

We also engage the parents of our students and so even when there are national strikes, we are still able to maintain contact with and monitor the progress of our students.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

In September 2013 at Watson University, Omotola Akinsola from Nigeria and Madelle Kangha from Cameroon, joined forces and Jumpstart Academy Africa was born. Aside from the fact that these two young women both hope to someday be Presidents of their respective countries, they know firsthand the challenges that surround girl education and share the same philosophy of social change.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Our core staff: President, CEO, Program Manager and Community Liaison Officer - all have sound experience in leadership, entrepreneurship and teaching. Our Mentor Fellows are entrepreneurial, highly skilled university students and recent graduates. We have volunteer Global Ambassadors who support our core staff on the ground. Our Board and Advisory Board include professionals and entrepreneurs from leading organizations across Africa and beyond.
