About the Sozo Networks

Sozo Networks is a non-profit organization known for promoting the participation of young people in civic leadership and social entrepreneurship in Nigeria. Through unconventional education methods, we help young people develop competence for active community engagements and leadership. Our leadership development practice develops young leaders and strengthens youth-led initiatives by providing experiential training, volunteering opportunities, networks, hands-on experiences, and idea incubation programs. Our alumni network has evolved into a strong ecosystem of young social change leaders, collectively and individually providing solutions to some of Nigeria’s most critical problems through civic leadership and entrepreneurship.

Our Programs

We bridge a significant loophole in the nation’s education system by offering mentorship and alternative educational opportunities that allow young people below the age of 20 to develop essential skills for active citizenship, leadership, and career in the 21st-century society and workspace. 

We raise young social change leaders through a 5 phase approach (DCDES) that helps them to discover their vision and needs, develop self, create solutions, engage with communities to test the solutions, and finally pass on impacts to others. 

We promote entrepreneurship by teaching on social entrepreneurship and design thinking. Our training programs supports youth entrepreneurs to develop their ideas, find product market fit, launch products and secure capital.
