In April 2022, The Fame Foundation expanded the reach of its Leadership and Skills-Based programme, Fame Global Leadership Programme to Iseyin LGA, in Oyo State.
The Fame Global Leadership Programme is designed to help young people in public secondary schools develop life, leadership, employability and entrepreneurship skills. Through the FGLP programme, FAME will be teaching leadership values and life skills for personal success, giving young people a sense of purpose and direction, providing young people with an opportunity to contribute and add value, giving young people in Nigeria an equal opportunity at success, helping them know their rights and responsibilities to the nation and community and also helping young people transition to further education paid employment or entrepreneurship.
With support from the Oyo State Ministry of Education, sixteen (16) government secondary schools across the Local Government Area in Iseyin have been signed up to participate in the Programme for the 2021/2022 academic year. They are;

Among the series of activities lined up to engage these schools during the 6 weeks period is the Training of Trainers (ToT). The ToT was an intensive training (ToT) of 32 Teachers. The training exposed the teachers to FAME’s Leadership and life-skills curriculum.
The ToT is aimed at developing the capacity of the teachers who will be mentoring students in the aforementioned schools and also to widen the participant’s awareness of self-leadership and empathy, and how this translates to leading others.
The sessions were facilitated by FAME Staff. The training left the participants feeling very inspired and confident in taking up their new roles and responsibilities. It challenged the new FGLP teachers to always find the most innovative ways of consciously infusing the learnings from the ToT into their regular teaching engagements. They attested to the fact that the curriculum will give the students a complete experience outside of the FGLP curriculum.
Some of the participants shared their experiences here.
FAME will provide 32 teachers and 960 students in 16 Government Secondary Schools in the Iseyin LGA with leadership and life skills learnings through the FGLP Programme.
