Strategies for preparing children for the future of work

African Leadership Academy’s  (ALA) Dean Uzo Agyare-Kumi is a mother of two and serves as Chair for the ALA’s Dejen Parents Association.

“It’s really an opportunity for parents to understand ALA’s amazing mission and the activities in the academy, and to engage in them. It’s also an opportunity for parents to begin to build a network of influencers in their own right towards supporting that mission,” says Agyare-Kumi.

The Dejen Parents Association was established to support, inform and engage parents on the life of the Academy, to promote meaningful parent involvement that will encourage student success and development, and provide opportunities for families to connect with one another in their home countries and Africa at large.

The work done through the Dejen Parents Association was one of the key motivators that kick-started the Anzisha Parent Community – a network geared towards families seeking support and guidance to cultivate their children’s entrepreneurial aspirations. 

At Anzisha, we believe that parents play a critical role in the youth entrepreneurship ecosystem and as much as very young entrepreneurs need support, so, too, do those who are closest to them and who embark on a parallel journey.  

The Anzisha Parent Community also serves as a platform to de-mystify entrepreneurship as a concept and as a practice.

The world is evolving, and parents need to come together to understand more about entrepreneurship and how to enable these very young job creators. That’s why we asked Dead Uzo to share her experiences with building communities and strategies for preparing children for the future of work.
