John Bosco is the Founder and of UNITED AFRICAN YOUTH ASSOCIATION (UAYA)
Trained as educator and development specialist, during the 2002 NEPAD/APRM reforms in Africa, John Bosco was one of the few Rwandans that actively advocated for youth mainstreaming in NEPAD process.
He was very instrumental in conferences like, the African youth parliament Nairobi-Kenya, the fourth African Development forum (ADF 4) pre youth symposium, Addisababa 2005 which all lead to major policy documents like the NEPAD youth Strategic frame work 2004 that later informed the elaboration of the African youth charter which was adopted by heads of states and governments.
His exposure to international development agenda earned him and other 22 young influential leaders from Africa and German an opportunity to co-author a common paper on how to develop partnership between Africa and German and held meetings and lectures at leading European institutions like the EU parliament, NATO, German parliament, the German presidential palace and other historical sites like the holocaust memorial and cathedral church which has existed since 2002 years.
In 2005-2006, John Bosco passionate with public debate made history, when he started a youth radio forum on flash FM, he volunteered to sustain un ill funded show for one year despite, the fact that Rwanda was still in the climate of fear. High profile officials flying in Kigali capital where invited to share their mind capturing imagination on the future of Rwanda and what the role of the Rwandan youth entail. And notable of these include Rose, from the South African institute on international affairs, Mbaye from UNECA and many local dignitaries and youth leaders. It was during this one year that john bosco developed interest in public debate and event moderator that he currently shares in business services.
The vision he had of " youth leadership", led to the 'birth' of Innovative Leadership Strategies and Entrepreneurship Academy (ILESA LTD)
After establishing this concept, John Bosco was once again exposed to youth participation and research, as a consultant His passion to address youth and child needs became an obsession he is currently trying share with you in book that his is yet to publish.

He successfully completed a course at Rwanda institute of management and administration (RIAM) on rural consultancy. This knowledge he now shares with others.
He was an active participant during the Africa Peer Review mechanism in Rwanda and in other African countries acceded to APRM, where he endeavored to contribute on behalf of the youth of Africa. A key to his passion in governance and democracy research despite his education background as a trained teacher from Kigali Institute of Education. He went on to pursue a master in development studies with Kabale University, majoring in policy formulation and policy analysis.
