This is an Initiative established to serve as a support and social network platform for emerging youth leaders. Club SLI reflects our vision to re-orientate and re-engineer the mind-set of young leaders, mentor as well as help Nigerian youths discover, develop and deploy their leadership skills, talents and capabilities towards driving positive change in the society.


  1. To serve as a social network platform bonding like-minded Young Nigerians seeking positive change in the nation.
  2. To plan and organize youth-empowerment and development programs.
  3. To act as backbone and platform for emerging leaders.


Salimo-Wits Leadership Initiative created the Youth Empowerment Scheme (YES) to provide sustainable empowerment that will accelerate the leadership development and achievement as well as aid promising young people to actualize their life goals and potentials. Some of our empowerment tools include monetary, material, leadership training and academic scholarships, skill acquisition, vocational training and business support etc.


Taken cognizance of mentoring as a crucial component of leadership development, the SLI mentoring program is thus designed to offer opportunities to diverse beneficiaries and would-be-leaders to leverage on the experience, knowledge and expertise of notable members of the public in different Career sectors through a developmental and mentoring relationship that will enable the mentee to fully participate in society as a mature and world-class professional. The SLI mentoring and coaching program mobilizes a crop of proven and dedicated leaders drawn from both the local and international scene. These successful local and International individuals will be accessible to the youths as mentors, models and coaches.
