The Young Leaders Mentoring Program is aimed at grooming young leaders who can lead themselves, lead others and become problem solvers in their society.
We live in a world with myriad of challenges and as the world works towards achieving Agenda 2030,we are glad to have raised a new batch of young leaders who will be advocating and proffering solutions to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
During the fourth module of the 2024 Young Leaders Mentoring Program, our amazing Head of Communications and a member of S.M.I.L.E’s Alumni-Mrs Ajibola Babalola, took the Change Champions through the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Her enlightening and educative session helped the young leaders understand the meaning, importance of the goals and practical steps they can take especially in their daily activities to help achieve the goals as well as create the world we want.
Furthermore, she simplified the teaching by teaching them about the 5 pillars of the Sustainable Development Goals namely:
๐Ÿ‘‰People Goals
๐Ÿ‘‰Prosperity Goals
๐Ÿ‘‰Planet Goals
๐Ÿ‘‰Peace Goal
๐Ÿ‘‰Partnership Goal
A major highlight was the interactive session where the students and teachers (S.M.I.L.E school counselors) shared the SDG they were drawn to and how they have been championing the SDGs in their respective schools.
A pledge taken by the Change Champions to play their part in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by teaching their peers about the SDGs and also solving problems around specific goals.
As an organization we will not relent in pushing towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
