As part of IHAV’s mission to raise and mentor youth visionaries and leaders by providing entrepreneurial nurturing environments, platforms, and forums where young Africans can dialogue freely, share ideas, start new initiatives and develop new projects, we started our first community symposium with the aim to inspire and empower youth in deprived communities by inviting young people to share their success stories and experiences with them, as well as mentors to guide them professionally. This took place at the Jamestown Library on 17th October 2015 from 10am to 2pm. We were able to meet up with about 50 youth in the Jamestown community aged 18 to 30. Some of the speakers they engaged with were Vera Adu Amani, Naa Amerley Tagoe, Mrs Florence Ofori and Paul Semeh.
