Work is important, to everyone. Studies have shown that nations with large cohorts of unemployed working population have the potential to descend into violence or unproductive activities. But what’s even more important is the quality of work.
The future of work, thanks to the rapid acceleration of technology, is uncertain. Everything we’re teaching our students now may be wrong or irrelevant. We need to teach students the fundamental life skills and develop them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, creatives, innovators, entrepreneurs, so that they can thrive in whatever the uncertainties are.
By 2034, Africa’s population will be 1.1 billion, larger than China and India. Unfortunately, this significantly younger labor force will be unprepared for the workforce.
At TRIBE, we are committed to harnessing this potential demographic dividend. We are creating programs to prepare high school students with the skills, tools and social capital to thrive in the uncertain future of work by leveraging research and data insights, entrepreneurship and technology education.
We envision an ecosystem in which Liberian and African enterprises are continuously accessing the tools to grow and expand their operations and impact, and students are being equipped with the relevant leadership, technological and entrepreneurial skills and tools to become independent and self-reliant.
We are creating innovative programs to improve learning outcomes and prepare young students for the future of work.
Our model emphasizes personal transformation as the basis for creating social change and impact. We are creating a model that can be replicated all across Africa, by young African leaders. We endeavor to deliver on our promise in the following ways:
