The 2011 Change Africa Summit is the 7th International Career Development Conference organized by CTF-Africa as a major part of its Impact Project. This is a training event aimed at developing more individuals and institutions that are capable of bearing a structural responsibility for socio-economic and socio-political transformation in Africa. The theme for this year is Re-defining Youth Leadership and Governance from the African Perspective.
The above theme came as a result of our passion to lay necessary foundations to help address the leadership challenges faced by young and upcoming leaders in Africa. We are in the dawn of a new era of development in Africa and we welcome it as the time to lay foundations for change and development; breeding a new generation of young active and visionary people that would be equipped to influence an unequaled transformation on the continent. Why visionary? Visionary because we are building and entering a future that has no familiar road signs; and this requires leaders that can look forward further and see possibilities and develop ideas that will provoke a change in the standard of living of people living on the continent of Africa.
The main objective of the Change Africa Summit is to restore hope to the youth, repair lives, and help to discover prosperous living through entrepreneurship skill development.
“Give a youth fish today, tomorrow he will ask you for more, but teach him how to fish and he will be grateful to you”.
Our emphases on entrepreneurship skill development enable the youth learn how to manage time and resources and how to create something from nothing and how to make it grow.
The 2011 Change Africa Summit will bring together key leaders and youth from various backgrounds to share ideas for growth and development connecting missions to missions and people to people around the continent.
