FAQs

YPAfrica is a mentoring platform for young professionals who must be graduates and must be between the ages of 21 and 33.

Previously, the event was held as YPLAGOS and YPCALABAR. Now, it’s being convened online, chiefly due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We have run YPONLINE (June 2020), YPFilm&Tv (November 2020), YfPOnline for Young female professionals (March 2021), YPLaw for Young lawyers (May 2021)

Unfortunately, you can’t. However, we will try and match you with a mentor that is close to your expressed interest. Plus please note that our selected mentors are leaders who have diverse experience that will be of benefit to you in a lot of ways than it may appear.

It’s N2,500 / $5 per person. Your registration is confirmed after you make a payment.

It will run from 9.30am to 12.15pm noon.
