YALF (Young Aspirants Leadership Fellowship) is a non partisan youth preparatory program designed to increase the space, participation and capacity of young aspirants and youth candidates to emerge as winners in the 2019 Nigerian General Elections
Many young people desire to run for political office in Nigeria but there is a huge knowledge and capacity gap among progressive youth on how to run for political office, raise funds, address campaign related issues and eventually win elections in Nigeria. Amidst these challenges, Nigeria with its huge youth population bulge does not have a consistent, structured and nonpartisan preparatory program for youth who desire to run for political office. If this gap is allowed unaddressed, it will continue to reduce the space and chances of progressive youth candidates to run and win elections.
