Nexus Youth Community

With the world population standing at 7.6 billion and over 50% [50.5% according to UNESCO 2017] being under the 30, it is logical to say that our world is young and should belong to young people by statistical rights.

It will therefore be a great foolishness not to invest in the rightful owners of this world.

Here is a bitter truth. Attaining the sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the United Nations even before 2030 is absolutely achievable if we all as a people agree to make it work. By setting aside personal, political, regional, religious and cultural interests.

The problems facing our world today wasn’t created by the current youths but they bear the most brunt of it. Several studies and reports from research have shown that these young people are willing to do whatever it takes to change their world. In a recent social media study by the Nexus Exchange Ltd, we found that every 9 in 10 young person between ages 15-30 are genuinely concerned about the state of our world today. 6 in 7 are very passionate about the SDGs. 1 in 3 do not feel that they are able to contribute towards achieving these goals as they are barely surviving and feels left behind in a world that belongs to them.

How did we ever get into this mess?
A lot of people are very knowledgeable about the problems in our world but only a few have preferred sustainable solutions. Complaining or having a profound knowledge of a problem does not solve it, creatively crafted innovative actions does.

To liberate a people, empower their minds. To liberate a continent, develop and unleash it’s youths. At the Nexus Exchange, we are committed to building sustainable eco-systems for young people. We believe in taking small practicable actions. Our approach allows us to tailor solutions to the problems of different people and communities.

We have developed some programmes specifically and exclusively for young people:


nexGEN Safe Spaces for Youth 1.0 [NSSY 1.0]

NSSY 1.0 is a deliberate investment in young people by the Nexus Exchange Ltd as a century 21 innovative company that is committed to building a sustainable eco-system for young entrepreneurs and young people.

NSSY 1.0 programme is designed to mentor and nurture young people in different sectors with the intention of driving sustainable social entrepreneurship across the 7 continents of the world.

It is our way of giving back to this beautiful universe and helping to safeguard it’s future.

We are creating safe spaces at the Nexus Exchange exclusively for young people aged 18-25 from across the 7 continents.

This is our conscious effort to prepare young people for the future.


Nexus Entrepreneurship Network [NEN]

To deliberately push back on Youth Unemployment, Nexus Exchange is investing in Youth Entrepreneurship and Partnership programmes.

As a precursor, we run the Nexus Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) at higher institutions across the world.

NEN facilitates entrepreneurship discourse within the academia. We identify young entrepreneurs and sponsor them through our mentoring programme to refine their ideas and potentials.

This programme feeds into Motherlanders – an initiative which we lead at the Commonwealth. This enables young entrepreneurs from NEN to mix with other young entrepreneurs outside the academia. Working in sectorial teams, they share knowledge and bounce ideas off one another.

These young entrepreneurs and their ideas get nurtured by our dedicated business mentors. Ultimately our young entrepreneurs are able to network and form alliances through our exchange programmes birthing sustainable, start-ups, partnerships and investments.

 

 

Nexus-Vocational Skills Development Programme

To address the high rate of poverty and unemployment of youths in the globally, we have developed our Technical and Vocational Education Training [TVET] programmes to equiped unemployed youths with vocational skills needed in the global workspace.

Nexus TVET programmes are delivered in collaboration with industries, TVET institutions, non profit organisations, government agencies, high commissions, international organisations, philanthropic organisations, private individuals, traditional kingdoms, and religious organisations.

During the Nexus Vocational Skills Development Program, trainees from around the world are posted to different organisations based on their area of vocational interest for trainings that enable them to acquire hands-on skills needed in the global workspace. The duration of the program is between 3-12months depending on the nature of vocational skill to be acquired. After completion of the Nexus Vocational Skills Development Program, trainees are either assisted to launch their start-ups with Nexus Exchange co-founding them or are linked to industries for employment.

The vocational skills areas include:
 Building Construction Technology
 Road Construction Technology
 Automobile Technology
 Welding and Fabrication Technology

 Renewable Energy Technology
 Drone Technology
 Hospitality
 Tourism
 Health Technology

nexGEN Culturepreneurship Global

In a world where traditional custodians of culture are hard-pressed on resources, it is imperative that we as a people should creatively find solutions to funding and save our priceless cultural heritage from extinction, both tangible and intangible.

These solutions must be sustainable. One of such solutions is to monetise and commercialize culture.

At Nexus Exchange, we are leading an Africa wide initiative on cultural entrepreneurship. We call it nexGEN Culturepreneurship Africa.

nexGEN Culturepreneurship Africa enables practitioners of arts and culture, both tangible and intangible to bring their crafts to the fore and share them all around the world. With our expertise in international cultural exchange, Nexus Exchange is set to unleash the true African spice on every nation all around the world. This will not only preserve our culture but will invariable adapt it to our modern world and even advance cross-cultural infusion. The ideas of cultural exchange and cross cultural infusion will be a great tool for global peace building and inter-cultural learning.

This is calling on ADB, UNESCO, UNDP, WORLD BANK, DFID, African national governments, the private sector and all stake holders to join and support the nexGEN Culturepreneurship Africa and together we will preserve, safeguard and share our cultural heritage.
