Douala – Vodafone Cameroon today formalized its Youth Programme agreement with the heads of the University of Douala, ISMA Private University and Saint Jerome Catholic University, in the presence of students.

“We have already successfully introduced the Youth Programme in Yaoundé last week under the patronage of the Minister of Higher Education, Pr Jacques FAME NDONGO, and we are excited to do the same here in Douala because youth represent the future of Cameroon,” said Antoine Pamboro, CEO Vodafone Cameroon.

The Vodafone Youth programme, aims to develop and empower youth and young professionals in achieving their potential through three key initiatives:

  1. A “Student Brand Ambassador” program that will offer young undergraduate students with the opportunity to gain work experience through internships, mentorship and other special initiatives at Vodafone Cameroon while pursuing their studies.
  2. A “Young Graduate” established to provide graduates with their first professional experience at Vodafone Cameroon with hands-on experience.
  3. The Digital Platform “JUMP” is a unique web portal, at www.jump.cm that will make available to young people and students content on training, education, entrepreneurship, self-employment, personal development and entertainment.

“Engaging with university students is a core part of our Youth programme and overall  marketing strategy, so we are extremely pleased to be the first to market with our unique web portal JUMP, which provides a direct channel for youth to learn  from and communicate with each other,” said Izouma Sidibe, Marketing Director.
