Youth-focused Profile
I am the team lead for youth Advocating for Development, established in collaboration with Akinyele Community Youth Organization to mobilize youth participation in community development in the various local community. I founded and co-led “Youth Speak loud” (Twitter @youthspeakloud) with over 50 members and five-member organizations from 3 local governments in Oyo State. I am presently a training consultant to the Ministry of Youth and Sport in Oyo state. I help them develop training material/content for youth in entrepreneurship and engage in training services.

In 2018 I published a book titled “The Mentor” after my mentorship advocacy tour of 23 secondary schools in Oyo state to help teenagers realize their potential with little or no mentors available, especially for children in the rural/semi-urban areas.
