The Avenue


Attend Nigeria’s Largest Convergence of Teenagers and Their Parents

Why Avenue?

Parents are among the most important people in the lives of young children. Sadly, many parents’ lives are fraught with problems and uncertainty regarding their ability to ensure their children’s physical, academic, career, emotional, or economic well-being.

The Avenue is a convergence of teenagers and their parents to:

  • Enhance healthy early childhood experiences
  • Ensure a head-start to a great career
  • Promote positive outcomes for children
  • Help parents build strong relationships with their children.

Our Plan this year

Research has shown that there is statistically nothing in common between teenagers’ career ambitions and projected labour market demand. The issue appears to be one of over-concentrated aspirations where certain technical and higher-earning professions that often require university degrees, such as medicine, pharmacy, law etc are disproportionately popular among students at the expense of skills needed for the jobs of the future.

This year’s edition promises to be bigger and better! Invited subject matter experts, life coaches and top rated CEOs will discuss what the Fourth Industrial Revolution mean for our children. They will provide insights on how the jobs young people aspire to and the skills and knowledge they are acquiring relate to the jobs we think we will need and the role of parents as chief influencers in helping their teenagers make the right choices.
