About Joshua

I am passionate about raising leaders who are excited about leading social change, community development and entrepreneurship. I have five years’experience¬† working on improving the future outcome of young people in rural Nigeria and helping youth organizations scale their impact.

I am the director of NextGen Africa Initiative, an organization that steers young people aged 8 and 18 towards their potential and the Project Coordinator of the Nigerian Youth SDGs Network, a national coalition of youth led/focus civil society organizations localizing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through advocacy and accountability through SDG project implementation.

I was selected Active Citizen of the Year by Voluntary Service Overseas in December 2014 because of my passion for empowering youngsters in leadership, ethics and volunteering.
