What you will learn

In today's fast-evolving world, the potential of our youth remains one of our greatest assets, and nurturing this potential is at the heart of the FGN-ALAT Digital Skillnovation Program. This holistic initiative, birthed from a strategic partnership between Wema Bank and the Federal Government of Nigeria, through the Office of the Vice President, aims to equip our young minds with a versatile set of skills and opportunities tailored to their individual aspirations and market realities.

Beyond mere skills acquisition, the program is set to create a ripple effect of socioeconomic benefits across the nation. By empowering our youth, we are not just fostering individual successes; we are investing in the broader narrative of national progress, promoting job creation, boosting innovation, and paving the way for a more prosperous future. With each participant we train, mentor, or incubate, we are making a conscious investment in the nation's future, ensuring that Nigeria remains at the forefront of the global digital economy.
