Global Young Innovators Initiative
Your chance to transform the world starts here. At the Global Young Innovators Initiative (GYII), you’ll serve as a real-life international business consultant for a small business in Nigeria. Along with a professional mentor and a team of other students, you’ll collaborate with a local Nigerian business owner to develop creative and sustainable solutions to the challenges their business or community faces.
When you participate in the GYII, you don’t just contribute ideas for businesses, you also gain invaluable experiences from professional mentors and industry leaders. Such a youth leadership conference helps students to hone their critical leadership skills and build self-confidence to lead the next generation of creative problem solvers and innovative thinkers. GYII is an ideal platform to experience the Harvard University campus life, as well as acquire valuable skills.
