BE EMPOWERED: Boost and Achieve Your Career Dreams in the GRANDSCOPE Youth Empowerment Scheme (YES!)…

 

DESCRIPTION:

lThe Youth Empowerment Scheme (YES) is a project packaged specifically for youths within the environs of operation of GRANDSCOPE, which is Amuwo Odofin. Youths constitute a major part of the increasing population of our country.
