YALD is a non governmental, detribalized and non religious youth development platform (organization) designed to Identify, Develop, Empower & Advance Leadership and Developmental Potentials among young Nigerian men & women for nation building.
As a development organization, YALD is the actualization of a childhood dream of Prince. Chris
Amadi Robert (The Founder), who has always envisaged the empowerment of young people to take
decisions regarding the present and future which belongs to us and the generations after us.
YALD as an organization was established in 2016 and formally incorporated by the corporate affairs Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the 14 th day of May 2018 with the Registration Number CAC/IT/No. 111234, as a non governmental organization saddled with the task of the development of young Nigerians Nationwide and Diaspora, leveraging on technopreneurship, employability, sports, and agricultural development.
The organization started when the founder returned to the country having earned certificates in Human Resource Development & Capacity Building from International Organization for Capacity Building (IOCB London) & International Business Administration and Global Leadership from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology/Accra Business School, Accra Ghana. The exposure and knowledge he gained eventuated the drive to activate the unlimited ingenuity and potentials of Nigeria’s rich youthful population, this led to several consultations, sensitizations and awareness on the need to bring young and development minded leaders from all geopolitical zones of Nigeria to incorporate what is today known as YALD.
