With great excitement, the Ogoni Youth Network cordially invites you to the 5th annual Ogoni Youth Network Conference that will hold in Atlanta, Georgia on December 14-17th 2012. Those that have been a part of OYN from the beginning will realize that Atlanta, Georgia was the birthplace of OYN and will have the opportunity to physically see the vast improvement and growth of OYN in only 5 short years. New members, in the same location in which this great organization was founded, will have the opportunity to be a part of the planning and execution of OYN’s next 5 years.

We also highly recommend for fellow Ogoni parents to encourage your children, regardless of age, to become a part of OYN and its initiatives and also to attend our annual conferences. This will serve as a means of grounding the young one in the values and traditions of the Ogoni people while creating an avenue for them to build great networking skills with fellow Ogoni youths in different professions varying from law, business, and the health care.

Scholarships for Students

The Ogoni Youth Network prides itself on the academic excellence of its members and encourages all to obtain the highest level of education possible by creating initiatives that create access to quality education and passing along information that may benefit others in their educational pursuits. Knowing that financing an education can be expensive, it is with great joy that we announce possible scholarship opportunities that may help alleviate those burdens. We ask that you please visit www.blackstudents.blacknews.com/ or Ogoniyouthnetwork.org to browse the scholarships. With various scholarships being handed out based on different qualifications, we strongly encourage everyone to take the time to search which ones pertain to you, and then apply for it. Many students refrain from applying for scholarships because they feel unqualified and doubt that they will be awarded; however, your chances of being awarded the scholarship is far greater when you send in an application, than when you do not so do not disqualify yourself. An education is a valuable investment in ensuring a successful future. Take advantage of opportunities to fund your education FOR FREE.
