Project 6® …building bridges
(A Tertiary Education Project)
“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease.”
– Robert Kennedy
Under this programme, we would strategically engage and work in partnership with the National Universities Commission (NUC), the various tertiary institutions and respective sectors and industries in the Nigerian economy to research into and provide solutions to ensure that the tertiary education and institutional development of tertiary undergraduate and graduate students meet the recurrent professional, intellectual and strategic needs of the various sectors of the economy to satisfy the needs of employability and national development.
Our strategy would include without limitation, policy and legislative advocacy for curriculum change & support where necessary, and harnessing partnerships with other local and international organisations; while also utilising Internships, Externships, Academic Exchange Programmes, and Specialised “Temp-Employment” schemes, to evolve a synergy between these students and their respective tertiary institutions, the public and private sector organisations, captains of industries and private sector industry drivers, global leaders and international institutions to create a direct mentorship-learning relationship which gives the student a foretaste of the global labour environment, employment, business, labour and leadership requirements and prepares them for the next stage of their lives as individuals.
Project 6® is a programme focused on mind re-engineering, character re-shaping and leadership development in young adults. The programme targets undergraduates, fresh graduates and post-graduates and is aimed at developing a values driven, highly skilled and employable labour force by ensuring functional professional capacity building, creativity, critical thinking and value orientation towards national development.
Young Graduates play a significant role in the successful development of any nation. They develop the nation by improving themselves, their skills and their knowledge of the country and its developmental sectors, thus making up the Labour and Leadership forces of the Nation. They are pillars of the future society – the future citizens, who become the “Nation’s protectors and philosophers”. Protectors (the Labour Force) protect the nation. Philosophers (the Leadership Force) guide the nation.
However, proven statistics reveal that over 70% of Nigerian graduates are unemployable thus evidencing a lack of adequate capacity to lead or guide the economy.
Our goal is to ingrain in the young adult a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease and thus help them gravitate towards our collective national ethos.
