About the summit

The YouthConnekt Africa Summit, first hosted in Kigali in 2017, has grown to become Africa’s largest annual convening that connects youth from across the continent and beyond with policy influencers, political leaders, and public, private, and development sector institutions to engage, discuss, design, and accelerate youth empowerment efforts at a continental level.

The summit is hosted by the Government of the Republic of Rwanda, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

This will be the 5th edition of the YouthConnekt Africa Summit. It aspires to deliver even more strongly this year, building on its unique convening power, rich conversations, to impact policies and investments made for continued youth development across the continent.
