Giving Back
Giving Back
There are many ways to get involved with KCOBA - Whether you want to give something back by supporting on King's College development projects, by mentoring King's College students, to get ahead in your career through networking or career development opportunities. King's College Development Projects
Presently, the KCOBA has taken up the challenge of restoring, preserving and developing the physical, intellectual, moral and social fabric of the institution.
This is due to the several years of inadequate funding and dereliction attributable to the over-burdened Federal Ministry of Education of Nigeria-the department of Government hitherto solely responsible for upkeep of the College, which is a Federal Government Institution. The Association has consistently raised colossal sums of money which have been prudently deployed towards this end. The effects are clearly visible for all to see in the College. The sustenance of the legacy of King's College is an on-going one to which the Association is strongly committed and this is being achieved through donations and contributions from alumni and friends of the college within Nigeria and from all over the world.
We hereby invite you to be part of a very noble and worthy cause - please contact the secretariat.
The Clever Club
The Clever Club (an acronym for Character, Leadership, Education, Values, Effort and Results) is a national reorientation initiative of the NLI aimed at engineering a paradigm shift in the current orientation of the Nigerian society by promoting core values which are crucial to the future development of our dear country Nigeria. The CLEVER Club sessions utilize hands on techniques such as role-playing, case studies and extensive group discussions to enable students inculcate the requisite moral and ethical values in all spheres of life.
The pilot phase of the programme has just been concluded and it involved a faculty of 15 volunteer Old Boys with 75 senior students participating. Plans are underway for the commencement of the substantive programme which will involve more Old Boys serving as facilitators with the entire student population participating.
To get involved, please contact the secretariat.
KCOBA's Jobs Fair
In line with the promise of the Hakeem Belo-Osagie-led EXCO to create employment opportunities for young Old Boys, the Association announces the launch of the KCOBA Jobs Fair. This programme, which is organised by the KCOBA in collaboration with Jobberman.com (Nigeria’s frontline Internet Job Board), is strategically designed to place younger generation job-seeking Old Boys in high-growth private and public sector organizations across the country.
Using Jobberman’s cutting-edge platform, KCOB Job seekers will be able to upload their CVs to a customized section of the website where organizations led by Old Boys can specifically scout for talent within the network. Qualified applicants will be shortlisted and invited to interview at the Jobs Fair from where at least 50 new full-time and internship positions will be offered.
