We are The Teens Going for Gold Network
Who we are!
Founded in 2012, Teens Going for Gold Network is a development initiative that educates teenagers on ethics and values, inspires them to dream more, do more and become more and also empowers them to become financially self-reliant. The organization has positively affected approximately 4500 Nigerians between ages 15-25. At Teens Going for Gold Network, we believe that the value of your life should not be determined by the number of your years and we are building that consciousness in the Nigerian teenager
Our vision at Teens Going for Gold Network is to groom teenagers to become financially self-reliant, socially conscious and value driven in order to promote the quality of education and reduce the rates of poverty and unemployment in Nigeria. This vision was inspired by the founder's faith in Jesus and her belief that a well educated youth population can bring about the change Nigeria needs.
To achieve our vision, we inspire, educate and empower teenagers and young persons to become socially conscious and financially self reliant through our projects and publications. We also develop the business, leadership and vocational aptitudes of teenagers. With the #TeachATeen campaign, we advocate for a system of quality and inclusive education that can sustain development.
This is how Teens Going for Gold Network is making a difference.
