About Nkabom

The Nkabom Commonwealth Youth Leadership Programme is one of the Royal Commonwealth Society’s flagship youth projects. Nkabom (pronounced ink-a-bom) means ‘coming together’ in parts of Ghana, where the first project was held in 2004.

Through a busy, interactive 10 day programme, Nkabom unites dynamic 18- to 25-year-olds from across the globe in a different Commonwealth location every two years. Alumni join a global, self-sustaining and proactive network of emerging leaders.

Nkabom is unique. It:

  • actively engages young people in international issues, particularly conflict resolution
  • fosters friendships and encourages the exchange of ideas among people from diverse cultural backgrounds
  • develops a network of young leaders who can pioneer and revitalise peacebuilding initiatives in their communities, their countries and beyond
  • is directed by young people themselves.

“Nkabom was more than just learning… it changed the way I look at life.”
Nkabom delegate, Trinidad and Tobago
