GAIN Youth Summit is a unique platform that primarily targets the youth as the key actors in the development agenda of the African continent. The summit convenes young leaders from Africa and the Diaspora and also promotes their impact.

A global youth event for discourse, dialogue and insightful engagement where young leaders learn from and engage with global leaders from multinationals, development institutions, CSOs,  public and private organizations.

An opportunity to build alliances, networks and promote multi-level collaboration for impact.
