Youth Connekt Africa Summit

Over the last 6 years, the Youthconnekt Africa summit, first hosted in Kigali in 2017, has grown to become Africa’s largest annual convening that connects youth from across the continent and beyond with policy influencers, political leaders, and public, private, and development sector institutions to engage, discuss, design, and accelerate youth empowerment efforts at a continental level.

Hosted by the government of the Republic of Rwanda, in partnership with the united nations development program (UNDP), this 5th edition of the Youthconnekt Africa summit aspires to deliver even more strongly this year, building on its unique convening power, rich conversations, to impact policies and investments made for continued youth development across the continent.

Inspired by the African union’s theme of the year, this year’s summit will focus on building the resilience of young people on the African continent to accelerate human capital and socio-economic development.
