The Young Women Mentorship Program (YWMP)

The Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund (NWTF) works to create spaces for women, specifically in public office and other leadership platforms. The Fund achieves this through advocacy, research and capacity development programmes for women and girls.

The Young Women Mentorship program provides young women, ages 18 – 30, with one-on-one matches with high profile women in government, non-governmental organizations and the private sector as mentors. The skill-focused mentorship will last for 6-months and aims at fostering self-respect, confidence, leadership and organizing skills, public speaking as well as creativity and critical thinking. The Mentees will also have the opportunity to benefit from NWTF’s leadership training workshops and exchange programs. The goal of the YWMP is to prepare the next generation of women leaders.
