Invest in Africa’s next generation of Energy Leaders Opportunities beyond privilege
EnergyNet’s YES! Youth Energy Summit launches at the Africa Energy Forum in Brussels on 21 – 24 June 2022. We’re creating a platform and network for early career professionals, entrepreneurs, students, and educators to boost the skills, connections, and business readiness of a new generation of African energy Leaders.
The YES! Youth Energy Summit is recruiting from corporates, foundations, NGOs, universities, and other initiatives.
We will support hundreds of Africans in public and private sector roles to learn how to develop and prosper, with both soft and technical skills, and the opportunity to meet with peers and senior influencers from across the continent.
Working with partner organizations, we’ll amplify access to the many complementary initiatives that are becoming available across the continent. YES! is actively seeking partners as we scale up.
