GLP Fellowship

Join our community of young leaders

Every year, we look out for committed young leaders with bold ideas from across Nigeria through a highly competitive process. Finalists are then trained, mentored and supported to become transformational leaders so as to establish their life-changing ideas in their communities.
 
These young leaders, otherwise called GLP fellows, are empowered, inspired and given access to a rich network of global change-makers to create positive change wherever they are. 
 
With a network of mentors in 14 countries and opportunities for partnerships, fellows are able to find purpose and create a positive impact. There are currently 95 fellows in 30 states and the FCT of Nigeria.

Testimonials

This programme came at an opportuned time. I had suicidal thoughts before then. I had given up on Nigeria ever being great but with the reorientation here, I can boldly say I am a changed person. The splendour of yesterday has been born again. Thanks to GLP.

If you see how reluctantly I registered for this GLP on Twitter, you will never believe I would have learnt this much. One thing I know is that everything is divine. I have learnt a lot In a short time. I can say that my level of information has doubled in the past few weeks. GLP is God’s idea for preparing His people for a perfect leadership of this country. A special thanks to General, Ceeroh and all our facilitators. God will bless and reward all your efforts.
– Benson Success, GLP Fellow 2019
I never knew I could explore more on teenagers until I joined GLP. It definitely is a place to discover purpose and follow clarity. GLP really made me push further from just blogging to talking which was as a result of the community project I embarked on. Thank you, GLP. It’s really an insightful place to be.
- Victoria Fakiya, GLP 2018 Fellow

GLP fellowship was the very first fellowship I attended since I started working in the development space. This program really changed my leadership style positively through mentorship and follow - up. GLP program built my skills and opened my eyes to other life-changing opportunities.

Thanks to my mentors MZ Magnanimous and Generalkopho for pushing me to achieve more.

Through GLP program and trainings, I was able to apply for other opportunities, which gave me a greater chance to be selected among the 500 United People Global Sustainability Leader.

Congratulations to me.

Thank you GLP team.

Thank you my mentors.
- Uwakmfon Alfred Michael, GLP2020 Fellow
Out of all the leadership training I have attended, this is the most organized. From day one to the exam, it was well structured. The facilitators are topnotch, the organizers are strict and empathic at the same time, my fellow GLP Fellows are great and awesome leaders. Truly, GLP is a serious business; I definitely will tell my story about GLP in the future. It’s not like the norm, it’s extremely different and impactful.
– Lilian Efobi, GLP Fellow 2020
This GLP program is a life changer for me, it has changed my way of thinking and opened my eyes to new possibilities. I can’t really appreciate the organizers enough for giving me such an amazing opportunity to rediscover myself and find my purpose.
-Ibrahim Saleem Muhammad, GLP Fellow 2020
I sincerely learned a lot, more than I expected. When I usually hear of leadership programs, I don’t put many mind to it since most talk theoretic that is inapplicable in real-life situations, but in this fellowship, I learned skills and techniques that are actually useful in today’s world. During these two weeks, I was also able to act as a leader to my team and I feel I took a step closer to becoming the leader I want to be. Thank you very much for granting me this opportunity.
