Multimedia Group receives YPYC MTN PULSE Africa Role Model overall organization Award

The Award’s recipients are YPYC’s finest selection of the most outstanding institutions and personalities who have truly excelled as transformational leaders and role models impacting society, young people and also inspiring change in their various endeavors.

The awards are few and were carefully chosen after going through a very competitive selection process by the selection Board and Governing council of YPYC.

The theme for this year’s summit is “The future of our youth: Jobs, leadership, entrepreneurship and digitization”.

Director General Prosecutions, Ghana Police Service, COP Nathan Kofi Boakye urged the youth to embrace digitization for personal and professional development.

“Times are changing and a lot of job opportunities have been erased. In thinking about jobs the first thing we should think about is what are the sustainable jobs going into the future?

“Our youth should be more concerned with current trends. We’re talking about jobs, we’re talking entrepreneurship, we’re talking about digitization and we’re talking about leadership. Among these four, what can drive all the others is digitization,” he noted. 

Founder and president of YPYC, Mr.  Andy Osei Okrah said there is an urgent need to secure the future of the youth to ensure development of the nation.

“Many young people do not want to learn any trade. They are growing more and more lazy just searching for quick fixes. University students are taken time betting instead of studying to come out with innovative solutions,” he observes.
