James founded “Street Priests” at the age of 15 to transform the lives of street children through a youth-led movement in Nigeria. To date, it has impacted over 3,300 children.

Inspired by his own experience, Street Priests Inc. runs community programmes that combine social and emotional learning to help reintegrate at-risk youth into society.

James is a member of the Generation Unlimited Young People’s Action Team (YPAT), a new group of young leaders with strong and expansive grassroot networks and significant experience in policy and practice in the key areas of Generation Unlimited: education, training, skills, entrepreneurship and civic engagement.

The time is now. The need is urgent. And 1.8 billion young people are waiting.
