Brightest Young Minds (BYM) is a 17-year old non-profit company that exists to create a positive social impact. BYM does this in three ways i.e. IDENTIFY, CONNECT and MOBILISE.
Every year BYM identifies 100 new young leaders across Africa to join the network. The new recruits first connect at a 5-day summit. Here they teach and inspire each other and, most importantly, act together.
After being inspired by established leaders, which have included Ahmed Kathrada, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, Michael Jordaan, Ketso Gordhan and more, the delegates participate in leadership development and lean start-up methodology up-skilling. Beyond the summit, delegates can use these skills to improve their efforts to change the world.
The theme of 2017 BYM summit is ‘Transcending The Limits of Thoughts’
