The ROI Community is an international network of leading young entrepreneurs and innovators who are fostering positive social change globally.
In our mentorship program, ROI Community members are joining forces with YIL Fellowship by mentoring their participants while they are developing innovative solutions for some important but complex challenges.
This gives our YIL fellowship participants the opportunity to benefit from the experience of some proven leaders in divers fields.
This event was made possible through the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation’s Grassroots Events Program.
YIL is a solution oriented fellowship, where the fellows are taken through the process of building a solution from the scratch. I've been privilege to be part of TEF program for example, where you will need to have a business or at least a scalable idea before you can enroll. With YIL all you just need to be part of the fellowship is a demonstration that you are smart and passionate enough to solve a pressing problem. YIL fellowship will take you through a process to discover yourself and help you to realize your capacity to solve problem even when you don't have the idea of the problem to solve.
One striking and unique fact about The Y.I.L Fellowship is the availability and assignment of mentors who are genuinely generous with their knowledge, ideas, and time despite their busy schedules. Such is not easy to come by easily, elsewhere.
The YIL Fellowship -- An initiative that thought me what could take a lifetime to learn in just 4 months.
I believe that the idea of The Y.I.L Fellowship, is brilliant and novel especially in Nigeria and Africa at large. The idea alone is right. The scope that was covered in the first in-person convening and the second was exceptional. The excellence with which everything was done wowed every participant.
