Project D'ACE

Project D'ACE

Critical Leadership for National development cannot be imported and therefore has to be developed locally. The Young Leaders Council (TYLC) in partnership with Peace-First is organizing a 3-Day Boot-camp for students in Universities and Higher Institutions across Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. The Project tagged Project D’ACE is a Leadership and active citizenship boot-camp designed to increase the level and awareness for quality leadership presently obtainable in higher institutions.

Project D’ACE would inspire, inform and equip selected participants with the leadership skills needed to produce a quintessential graduate ready to take on bigger responsibilities in the society and lead lives worthy of emulation by their peers locally and globally. Participants would be taken through sessions on Emotional Intelligence, 21st Century Leadership, Active Citizenship, Sustainable Development goals, Volunteering, Effective Communication, career mapping, Community development, building an effective brand among many others.
