Coffee Conversation: Pan-African Youth Social Entrepreneurship
Thursday, October 9
Chicago Cultural Center
78 E Washington St
Chicago, IL 60602
Join us for an afternoon Coffee Conversation with participants in the Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program. Coming from Côte d'Ivoire, Niger, and the Republic of the Congo, these 15 high school students and 3 adult mentors will spend three weeks in the U.S. learning about social entrepreneurship, civic engagement, and community service. They will present their Social Impact projects — developed in partnership with faculty and students from the Illinois Institute of Technology — which will be implemented in their home communities when they return.
This is the third cohort of the Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program that WorldChicago has hosted in 2014. Previous Social Impact projects have addressed issues such as access to clean water and sanitation, preventing the spread of disease, creating mentoring programs and community centers for orphans, supporting women's rights, and ending child marriage.
