Youth Professional Leadership Institute

The Young Women’s Professional Leadership Institute is an economic empowerment and professional leadership program for women and young women aged 18 to 35, who have a concrete business idea and are nationals of a French-speaking African country.

This institute aims to encourage the creation and expansion of businesses initiated by women and young women and/or their groups and to help them overcome the specific factors that discourage them from starting or taking over small or medium-sized businesses.

These are hybrid sessions that combine distance learning (online) with face-to-face training through the use of information and communication technologies. The courses/trainings of each Institute take place during a well-defined period of time according to the training modules.
