Citi foundation expands JAN programs to northeast Nigeria

The Citi Foundation has awarded Junior Achievement Nigeria a grant to pilot our out-of-school youth entrepreneurial training program, Immersion Training Strategies: Targeting Young Marginalized Entrepreneurs (ITS TYME) in Borno State.  The ITS TYME program will be delivered to 250 internally displaced youth with the goal of incubating and supporting 50 businesses that will contribute to sustainable economic development in the region.

The Citi Foundation, through Citibank Nigeria, a longstanding Board Member of JAN, has supported the delivery of JAN’s flagship Company Program to various secondary schools across four geopolitical zones in Nigeria, and with this grant, expands the relationship to cover a new demographic (out-of-school youth) in a new zone (Northeast Nigeria).  The JAN ED thanked leadership and staff of Citi Nigeria for their long-term support at a town hall held at Citi offices on September 21.
