In line with its positioning of creating value for Nigerians, PAL Pensions in 2018 launched a youth-focused Initiative tagged ‘NextU’ across Universities in Nigeria. Next-U is the CSR initiative of PAL Pensions focused on providing knowledge and guidance for creating the future to young people on career, investment and life choices. The Initiative seeks to equip youths with employability skills and reality of the workplace even before gain of employment.
A list of renowned names have graced the next-u events at campuses, drawn from various backgrounds to impart students with a well-rounded knowledge on how to “Discover their Potential” in its first year and “Unleash their potential” as the year’s championing campaign. Speakers representing various backgrounds of financial literacy, investment, employability, career growth, entrepreneurship, arts and the new media include: Olusola Amusan, Tomi Balogun, Seyi Law, Shola Akinlade, Otto Orondaam, Kunle Idowu (Frank Donga), MC Bash, Tunji Andrews, Ice Prince Zamani, Laura Ikeji Kanu and Gossy Uwanwoke.
