We are firm believers in the great potentials of Nigerian youth. When given the opportunity to thrive, our young people exhibit nothing short of excellence. Unfortunately, Nigeria has the highest number of out of school children in the world.
Those who are privileged to go to school are not guaranteed a well-paying job as the country also suffers from unemployment. Sadly, beyond the fact that there are limited opportunities, most schools are not designed to help young people explore their talents, equip them with entrepreneurial mindsets and prepare them for workplace realities.
Crystal Lens was borne out of a strong desire to help young people see beyond existing limitations and to change the narrative of an average Nigerian youth.
It is a laudable effort by Crystal Lens to fill the learning gap faced by students who are lagging behind as a result of the current physical learning restrictions. CLVLC is a structured virtual learning program targeted at senior secondary school students, especially those preparing for their final high school exams (like WAEC, NECO, GCE, JAMB etc.).The program includes: teaching participants specific core subjects; providing career development support; helping with college preparation; and equipping participants with life skills. In line with the vision of Crystal Lens, the program aims to help our young people attain academic, career and life success.
