Press Release

June 30, 2021, 1:28 p.m.

Ingressive for Good has opened its student ambassadors program to expand the I4G Circles to Ghana and reach more students in Africa while fulfilling its mission to increase the earning power of one million African youths by empowering them with tech skills and placing them in jobs.

The I4G Circle is an exclusive student community of young, smart, confident, and influential students in universities across Africa passionate about tech and leveraging it to solve problems. Ingressive for Good is looking to leverage the I4G circle program to connect more students to technical training, micro-scholarships, and tech jobs. It's a community many students crave to be part of.

Having launched July 1, 2020, Ingressive for Good has organically trained 66,570 African youths in tech, grown their community to over 81,590 members, and awarded over $42,600 in scholarships. They have also deployed over $5,000 worth of tech tools and data. They have partnered with Facebook, Coursera, Yale African Startup Review, Jobberman, DataCamp, and a host of multinational companies.

To reach more students, I4G needs student ambassadors who will lead I4G Circles in their school and is passionate about building the tech communities on their campuses. As an ambassador, you would be required to host monthly tech webinars on your campus and distribute opportunities shared by I4G within your school. You would be a rockstar impacting the lives of students on your campus.

Galleh Solomon, the Co-lead Ambassador at I4G NSUK shared his experience as an ambassador:

"I loved web development but so many things have stalled my progress due to the pandemic. I didn’t have the resources I needed and I wasn’t in an environment with many people to run to for help and online courses were very expensive. A friend introduced me to the community and I applied for the role of the co-ambassador. That moment was a turning point for me. I was opportune to meet a great community of like minds where I got to learn from people with diverse experience in my field, and I got access to online tutorials for free, even scholarships.

Before I4G I struggled with imposter syndrome, but with the responsibilities on my shoulder, I learned how to overcome my fears and now I can gladly say it has been an upward trajectory since joining I4G as an ambassador. My success today won’t have been this much but with I4G and my responsibilities as a leader, I am learning fast and doing more. Most of all, I get to carry a lot of people (community members) with me and we all succeed together. I can say I have overcome imposter syndrome and I am fully focused on adding value to my community and my environment at large."
