Youthfulness is a blessing, and the strength of any nation is in its youths. So, with the massive number of youths in Africa, one would expect the African continent to be the champion of the world, but this is not so.

The average African youths are confronted with the daunting challenges of making a significant impact in their nation and the world at large, without possessing the right knowledge, tools, or conducive environment to achieve this. They have the desire to contribute meaningfully to their world, but many do not possess the skills or resources to make this happen. 

That is why the importance of empowering and equipping the African youths with the skills and knowledge to become exceptional youths in the 21st century can’t be overemphasized. And this is what gave birth to the TEBEBA Youth Empowerment Conference (TYEC) 2022.

So, are you a youth between the ages of 18 - 39?

Would you like to equip yourself with personal development, leadership and monetizable skills?

If yes, 

Then this conference is just for you!

At the TEBEBA Youth Empowerment Conference (TYEC) 2022, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from other exceptional African youths doing exceptional things in their field. 

We’ve brought together experienced speakers and professionals from various fields across different African countries to share their knowledge and expertise with the youths.

Check out our lineup of speakers
