About Us

We are building an authentic community where youths join because
they are genuinely interested in connecting with and learning from peers.
Youth in Energy bridges the gap between African Youths, Governments and Private Sector so as to include youths (Students, Professionals and Entrepreneurs) in all upcoming energy projects in Africa. However there are a lot of barriers of entry that are preventing Young People from accessing the numerous opportunities that are coming out as a result of Africa's Energy boom.

The Youth in Energy database is the largest network of Young People across Africa for Youths who want to play a role in Africa's Energy future and it is open for use as a catalyst in integrating Africa's Young people into Africa's Energy boom.

Our Approach - - -

Our intention is not just to rise through the ranks and climb the corporate ladder, but instead be conscious in our choice and deliberate in our actions. With this we commit to working responsibly, ethically and collaboratively.

We believe it is our responsibility as professionals and entrepreneurs to act as role models within the industry. To Youth in Energy this means engaging youths in the conversation, developing a supportive and inclusive culture and staying informed about the impacts of our businesses.

We are about the quality of our members – not quantity.

Youth in Energy is organically building an authentic community where members join because they are genuinely interested in connecting with and learning from peers.

When it comes to mentoring, our motto is ‘for youths, by youths’. Youth in Energy has flipped the conventional concept of mentoring on its head – instead of top down, it is peer-to-peer connecting like-minded youths and avoiding the disconnected conversation that can happen between different generations and industries.


JOIN YOUTH IN ENERGY and make the commitment to change the face of energy.
