History of Youth Branding University's International Presence

In 2014, Youth Branding University established a partnership with two youth organizations one in Sanoyea District, Bong County, Liberia, West Africa, and the other one in Dakar, Senegal, Africa. Please refer to the pictures below.

Besides Youth Branding University having a presence in Africa, since 2005, our Founder and President has provided business development training to organizations in  Vancouver (Canada), San Jose (Costa Rica), Bangalore (India), Chennai (India), Mumbai (India), New Delhi (India), and Mexico City (Mexico).

Nigeria is the largest country in Africa in terms of population and has approximately 20% of the total out-of-school children population in the world. Adding to this challenge is the demographic pressure with about 11,000 newborns every day that overburdens the system capacity to deliver quality education.
