Entrepreneurial Leadership Forum


Every year, FELA brings together high school students from all the Regions of Cameroon for a three-day Entrepreneurial Leadership forum.


The biggest problem Cameroon, like many other countries in the African continent is battling with is youth Unemployment. Among many reasons for this problem is: a mismatch between youth education and the skills required by the job market. This is due especially by lack of proper pre-university orientation/preparation. FELA is at the forefront of providing concrete solutions to these problems through FELA's Entrepreneurial Leadership Forum.

FELA’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Forum is an annual 3-day free event which brings together 100 active high school student leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the national territory.
