CSAAE 2021 Youth Development Goals

The Centre for Social Awareness, Advocacy and Ethics (CSAAE) is a nonprofit dedicated to helping young people build great careers, cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurship, become leaders of character, and embrace their roles as critical actors in building a better Africa. The Centre pursues its mission through three distinct programs that share the common goal of creating positive social, economic, and political change one person at a time. They are:

  1. An Effective Leaders Program (ELP) that nurtures Aspiring Leaders committed to the development of Africa.
  2. A Career Building & Entrepreneurship Program (CBEP) that helps young people get the education they need, secure employment or initiate enterprises that contribute to the development of Africa.
  3. A Youth Ethics and Anticorruption Program (YEAP) that raises the consciousness of young people to the importance of good governance, rule of law, human rights, and anticorruption towards the development of Africa

CSAAE is a registered nonprofit in Nigeria, a 501(c3) nonprofit in the United States, an organization in special consultative status with the United Nations’ ECOSOC and former representative of African CSOs at the World Bank & IMF. The Centre carries out its operations from its head office in Owerri, Nigeria, with technical support from its U.S. office in Maryland.

The Founder, Dr. Godswill Agbagwa – priest, ethicist, socialpreneur and youth animator – grew up in Nigeria. While studying abroad as a graduate student, he was struck by the contrasts he saw between the levels of underdevelopment in Africa as compared to the Western countries he visited. Those experiences became the genesis of CSAAE, its programs, and the five core values at the foundation of his work – punctuality, integrity, creativity, accountability, and solidarity (PICAS).
