“Think of what you have rather than of what you lack. Of the things you have, select the best and then reflect how eagerly you would have sought them if you did not have them.”

-Marcus Aurelius

“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.”

-Steve Jobs

“Power isn’t control at all-power is strength, and giving that strength to others. A leader isn’t someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to others that they may have the strength to stand on their own.”

-Beth Revis

What is IYLS

The role of leaders in the success of any system cannot be overemphasized. In a world that is constantly growing and diversifying, it is even more critical to have leaders that are vast, enlightened and well adapted to the changes happening around us. It is therefore necessary for us to secure our future by grooming the leaders of the future from the generation that is spearheading the evolution of our world; the youths.

The Inspire Young Leaders Summit (IYLS) is an initiative that aims at building future leaders from the youths in our society. We are driven by a passion to develop leaders in as many youths as possible, because we recognize that leadership is not a function of position but of service.

We believe that by creating a network of youths with leadership mindsets we can drive solutions to the problems that continue to riddle our societies.

Count down to IYLS 2018








What to Expect

Major Programs Includes; 

-Certificate leadership Training

– Keynote Sessions

– Workshop Sessions

– Panel Discussions – Variety Sessions

IYLS being an initiative by the young and for the young, is focused on delivering discussions, training and programs that are on-target and relevant. We collectively highlight the major topics of discussion making them generally inclusive and immediately impactful to everyone. The topics covered by the summit are hopeful, encourage forward thinking and are solution centred.

IYLS is about more than just bringing youths together and speaking to them, but also about how their individual impacts create ripple effects of change across our world. As a growing platform, it creates opportunity for the voices of the youth to be heard loud and clear.

Volunteers do not necessarily have the Time; but they have the heart. IYLS 2018 will inspire lots of youths and it will be of a great honour and achievement to volunteer to make this a success.


2018 Inspire Young Leaders Summit is coming soon.

After the success of the 2016 IYLS, we have decided to do more of it because it's our job to Inspire the youths to do great things. Join us this year to attend the summit.
