On Wednesday, 9 October 2019 the YUVA Academy conducted a 4-hour session on Corporate Leadership with 19 staff members of the Indian Oil Mauritius Limited (IOML).
IOML was incorporated in Mauritius in 2001 and began physical operation in 2004. IOML has, over the years, positioned itself as the leading supplier of Jet Fuel in Mauritius. Within a short span of time, it has become the most preferred aviation fuel supplier in Mauritius, servicing at present nearly two-third of the total aviation fuel supplies in Mauritius. The company caters to the supply of fuel for all major International and Domestic Airlines in Mauritius.
Today, the YUVA Academy launched the first session of its sixth cohort for The Entrepreneurial Mindset (TEM) and Leadership for Social Change (LSC) programmes with 42 aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders.
Mr Kris Padayachy, the trainer for the entrepreneurship programme, started this first session with a brief introduction of himself and then of the missions and visions of YUVA and the YUVA Academy. He then gave the opportunity to each participant to introduce themselves and express their reasons behind attending the entrepreneurship programme. This allowed the participants to get to know and be at ease to communicate and interact with each other.
The cohort 5 of the Certificate in The Entrepreneurial Mindset programme started on Saturday, 6 July 2019. The YUVA Academy welcomed 16 aspiring entrepreneurs, including NGO representatives from various parts of the island. The Certificate in The Entrepreneurial Mindset programme is delivered by YUVA’s Programme Coordinator, Adiilah Mohorun.
