The Olivet Academy offers ‘about life’ grooming. While its series of teachings help in character moulding and shaping, the academy maintains its focus on leadership and development training. 

Established in 2007 and registered under the Olivet Bible Church, the academy’s five schools; Foundation Truth Studies; Life Education Advancement Programm; Life Impact Ministerial Academy; Evangelism, Missions and Outreach; Life Impact Development have built a burgeoning  crop pf people who have  impacted society positively.  

Serving as Registrar of the academy, sociologist, Joy Ngwawke shares significant experiences on how foundation of value remains a bedrock for a hardworking and peaceful society.

Leadership

The academy evaluates the meaning and importance of leadership through teachings. These teachings try to build a true understanding of leadership. While many people erroneously think that leadership qualities are meant only for people holding positions of authority in formal settings, the notion is corrected. People are trained to know that each person needs leadership qualities to be able to act reasonably in their own capacity, be it at the level of a domestic servant.

Entrepreneurship

The academy has given people, especially the youths, insights to owning and managing their own little businesses. It trains people to build up their confidence level to the point of creating little enterprises and sustaining them over time. The vision for this is to start long-term plans that will ultimately build business owners than job-seekers who may not necessarily find one.  

People can’t own and manage businesses on mundane ideas. They need to align with requirements of modern businesses and that is one of the key issues that the academy takes handle with respect to capacity building.

Time –management

Ability to manage time valuably is key to success! It is one of the watch words of the academy and it begins right from the training classes. Students are put through life lessons and they fully understand the gains and losses of using time positively or negatively.

Responsiveness to society

“Teach even a child the importance of giving something back to society and the effort of each person will make up the greatest pool for a sustainable growth,” says Ngwakwe.

Her passion for managing the academy has further grown following field experiences she gathers from advocating for the less- privileged in society. She manages a Non-Governmental Organisation called the Centre for Advancement of Development Rights (CEADER).

CEADER has demonstrated the benefits of giving back to society.  Over the years it has empowered young women to be economically independent. Young women who had erstwhile been on the streets and engaged in prostitution have been given capacity-building training in tailoring and hairdressing.  

Today, they are profitably engaged in small-scale businesses from which they make a living.

CEADER also advocates for gender equality. It made a case for women to be involved in the various Town Hall Meetings in the Ijora area of Lagos, which helped women who were heads of households to be involved in the compensation plans by the state government for areas where relocation exercises were billed to take place.

Besides the academy’s premises in 6th Avenue Festac Town, Lagos where lectures hold, the academy has extended its reach through an online advantage. People across Nigeria and outside Nigeria can benefit from the lectures.
