How can African Youth add value to the ecosystem when they are not Informed, Mentored or Empowered?
Jayden Robinson Youth Foundation (JRYF) is a non-profit organization with special interest in empowering African youth and bridging the gap of
graduate unemployment. The Foundation was borne out of Jayden Robinson’s visionary initiative to inform, mentor and empower less privileged African youth, using the Inform, Mentor and Empower (IME)
African Youth Model as the backbone for the Foundation's projects.
At the Foundation, we strive to develop capabilities and entrepreneurial acumen in the youth.
Trainees who show exceptional intelligence during our periodical Skills Enhancement Training programmes will be availed scholarships to further their learnings at the Tertiary education level and to acquire vocational/professional certifications depending on their leanings, while internship opportunities will also be available for them.
Mentoring these young ones at JRYF revolves around round-the-clock training, motivation, counselling, direction, coaching, support, goal setting and chasing success; and empowering them is an indelible legacy for human capital development and a sure indicator for a prosperous society Africa.
JRYF understands that while sport is essential to human development, it also contributes to economic development.
Sport actively educates young people about the importance of certain key values, such as professionalism, honesty, fair play, respect for one self, et cetera.
This focuses on mentoring youth to learn about career opportunities in different industries. But more than anything, the programme is modeled to empower those who show intelligence capacity with advanced opportunities like internships, scholarships and direct employments.
To recruit into JR Sports Academy, high school competitions will be organized regularly to ensure we achieve our objective of selecting the best fresh talents across sports like football, athletics, table tennis, basketball, et cetera. They will be trained and exposed to top competitions, trials and sport clubs.
Management team of the Foundation makes great efforts to bring on board partners to support its objectives of empowering African youth and bridge the gap of graduate unemployment.
As part of our vision and plans to breed the next generation of African champions for national, continental and international
JRYF Sports Academy was birthed to become a one-stop academy for African youth talents; talents that will be identified and given opportunities to showcase their latent abilities in competitions across the world.
