About Us

Our vision is to see a world led by competent young leaders.

Our mission is to nurture formidable leagues of competent young leaders that are actively transforming communities through innovative entrepreneurship, civic engagements, and public leadership.

Sozo Networks is a youth-led non-profit organization that trains and empowers young Nigerians through experiential training, volunteering opportunities, hands-on experiences, and local and international connections.

These programs have reached hundreds of young Nigerians who have gone on to implement successful high impact campaigns and projects. Through their local level work and leadership on diverse development projects, these program alumni are transforming Nigeria’s socio-economic landscape.

The network also has over 200 youth volunteers who serve as mentors for over 10000 teenagers from low-income communities across 4 states in Nigeria.
