About Us

Our Story

Talent abounds across the globe. Sadly, the uneven distribution of opportunity has left some of the most talented people in the world at a disadvantage. Leveraging the power of audio-visuals, young people’s innate attraction to the creative industries and the current pervasiveness of Internet and mobile technology, Graduatepro educates, inspires and equips young people to meet the demands of the African labour market.

Vision

To be the rallying point for all those passionate about tackling youth unemployment in Africa.

Mission

To design and deploy innovative interventions that increase access to employment opportunities for youths in Africa.

Our Philosophy

Everyone is born with a brain. The extent to which it is utilized is up to the individual. Personally, I do not believe there is any such thing as genius, just people who consciously, persistently raise the bar, because they believe they can.

Core Values

Excellence

In everything we do, we stand out. We understand we might never get a second chance to make a first impression. We put our best foot forward, always.

Empathy

We are driven by a deep and active desire to inspire hope and improve the lives of African youths.

Creativity and Innovation

We never rest on our oars. We study the trends and forecast its implications for the future. We strive to remain one step ahead and set the pace for youth interventions on the continent.

What We Do

We match employers with stellar talent

Hiring fresh talent is tricky but we’ve developed tested frameworks to find the best of the pack.

We train young people

We plan engaging, hands-on learning experiences both participants and sponsors find truly rewarding.

We advise businesses and governments

We understand how the youth space works and have the widest pool of youth influencers within our network. Let our experience work for you.

We manage the delivery of educational content

From print to audio to video, we manage the end-to-end design and delivery of inspiring and educational content that furthers our vision for young Africans.
