Narachi Mentorship Programme

About the NMP

Narachi Leadership has created a FREE virtual, annual programme for young persons between the ages of 19 and 25 years who have a strong desire to become influential in their communities, to be mentored by a broad network of high impact and successful leaders from across the continent and the world. Our 6-month Programme is designed to provide forward thinking and creative young minds with world class leadership training and tools, under the overarching themes of Leading the Self, Leading Others and Leading Systems, to set them on the right path early on in their careers as they emerge as the future leaders of Africa, helping them to create the Africa that they deserve and desire.

During the Programme, the NMP modules are held once a month for 3 hours on a Saturday morning commencing from 19 November 2022. There is also a 60-minute One-on-One Coaching with Rachel Nyaradzo Adams (the founder and CEO of Narachi Leadership) per Mentee. Successful candidates will graduate at the end of the Programme and will form part of the community of Narachi Fellows.

They say some experiences change your forever. For me, the NMP is one of them. The programme was such a life & career enhancing experience for me. It granted me access to some of the world’s most prominent thought leaders & a mix of some of the most brilliant young minds in Africa. If you want to be in the room where it happens, there is no better opportunity than the Narachi experience.

The NMP was an absolutely life changing experience. Each session showcased each mentee's curiosity to learn & ask questions without being afraid to do so. We have defined our strengths & weaknesses; we have tackled the issue of conflict; we have mastered the idea of personal branding & more. I would recommend this mentorship programme to all the youth of our continent.

It is a life changing program. You get out what you put into the program. The information I gained from the experience is priceless, & in all honesty I value it more than what I gained from my actual degree. It was also a great opportunity to mix with so many ambitious & inspiring people from all over the world.

Being a mentee at NMP is one of the best decisions I ever made. I met very bright people, had wonderful conversations & uncovered deep truths about myself. I’m more enlightened about the relationship with myself, others & where I work. It’s super important to have gained this knowledge at this stage in my life & I’m so thankful for the NMP. The NMP is a special thing.

Narachi Leadership made my life long inspirations realistic and reachable. I was exposed to network of talented individuals that I would have never have met if it weren't for the program and I believe that they will be people I can call upon again many years later in my life.

This programme has instilled in me a certain confidence I did not have before. The knowledge I have gotten from the programme as a young woman has put me ahead in my career as compared to other people my age. I would definitely recommend this to my friends, especially those who see themselves working in cooperate one day.

Being a part of the NMP has been a transformational journey! I got to learn more about myself, how I can be more effective in my roles & the boldness to thrive. I’m excited to put into action the practical skills I’ve gained. I now have a tribe of fellow mentees who are also on a mission to bring impact.
