About Nigeria Youth Future Fund 2023

The NYFF is anchored on three core components which include:

  1. An Imaginative Futures Working Group at the national and regional levels to mainstream youth ideas within the long-term planning process
  2. Youth Leadership Program: This pillar seeks to build the capacity of young leaders and youth lead organizations while also providing grants for young people/organizations working on the identified thematic areas.
  3. Online and Media engagement: The fund seeks to strengthen the voices of young Nigerians through policy advocacy, debates, online campaign, and so on toward the realization of  #theNigeriaWeWant.
