Educate! unlocks the potential of African youth to solve the greatest
challenges facing their communities. Our model is exponential
empowerment – investing long-term in youth so they can positively
impact many others. Educate! provides a proven mix of a social
entrepreneurship and leadership course, long term mentoring, and an
alumni program that helps high school students start enterprises.
Today, Educate! is working with 1,400 diverse youth across Uganda and
developing a model that can be replicated across Africa.
