Our Mission

Preparing Africa for the future by empowering Young Africans to build successful careers in Education.

The YoungEd Challenge

The education sector skills supply gap needed to meet the demands of educating Africa's next generation poses a challenge that must be addressed to position the continent for the future.
 

Of Africa's population is under 25 years old, with the median age on the continent of 19 years.

Education jobs are required in Sub-Saharan Africa to meet SDG4 2030 goals.

Yet, Sub-Saharan Africa has the most severe shortage of teachers and an aging education sector workforce with high attrition rates.
