Blackboard Africa’s Pass-The-Baton is a youth mentorship series that was launched in 2018. The program is a youth engagement initiative that uses digital content for storytelling and conversation. The content builds a strong narrative to inspire, motivate, educate, and engage. The program is about conscious preparation of young people between the ages 12-25 to overcome the hurdles of life in pursuit of social impact. We use it as a tool for raising Social Entrepreneurs while equipping them with Communication, Relationships and Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Decision Making that can bring positive change in the environment.
Pass the Baton helps ambitious young people from around the world scale their social impact projects. Our goal is to equip young people with the right mindset, strategy, connections, cohort community, and execution process to help launch a successful social impact initiative.
