KLCI Organises 2-day Skill2Rural Bootcamp for Students in Kwara

On August 19th and 20th, 2022, the Kwara state branch of Kayode Alabi Leadership and Career Initiative (KLCI) implemented Skill2Rural Bootcamp.

KLCI is a youth-led nonprofit organization that uses three-pronged approaches to empower children in rural communities: Education for Sustainable Development, Mentorship, and Advocacy. KLCI also uses a volunteer mobilization approach to providing mentorship, educational support, and practical leadership training for secondary school students in under-served communities. Also, it leverages technology to support young people between the ages of 15 – 35 with leadership and career development training to empower children in rural communities.

The Bootcamp was held at Fate Hall in Ilorin, attended by 50 students from 10 secondary schools around the Fate community. The participants were trained in sessions such as Money Management, Introduction to the SDGs, Vision Boarding, Servant Leadership, Social Entrepreneurship, Storytelling for Impact, and Design thinking.

Skill2rural Bootcamp is a 2-day program which focuses on bringing secondary school students in underserved communities together in a safe place to think productively, design strategies, and co-create solutions to solve major problems facing their immediate society.

The boot camp hosts prominent young people working relentlessly to promote quality education in Kwara state. The sessions were facilitated by young education advocates like Funmi Omisope, Founder of Home and Street Kids Welfare Initiative (HSKi); Mohammed Ayodele Ataba, Founder of  Baba Slum Cares Foundation initiative; Emmanuel Tobiloba, Founder of Impact Point Academy; Almustaqim Balogun, Human Resource Manager at KLCI; and Omolola Lipede; the Senior Program Manager of KLCI.

A major idea of the boot camp is the design thinking class that sees students co-creating solutions to problems faced in their communities.
