NGAN SYLVESTER YENGO
Focal Point Of Team Cameroon
Ngan Sylvester Yengo is an educator, education advocate/activist, an education consultant and Regional Pedagogic Inspector in charge of Physics in the North West Region of Cameroon. Healso doubles as Delegate and Talent Envoy representing the African Federation for the Gifted and Talented (AFGT) in the Republic of Cameroon.
Sylvester draws his strength from twenty years of teaching physicsin the Cameroon Secondary and High Education System, eleven years of examination management experience; having held several positions at the Cameron General Certificate of Education Board from Advanced Level Physics Examiner to Examination Superintendent. He is a member of the teachers’ syndicate, the Teachers Association of Cameroon (TAC). Sylvester’s five-year stint in the National Executive Council of TAC as Public Relations Officer took him across the length and breadth of the education landscape in Cameroon characterized by very appealing mediaoutings on state and private radio and television.
Concerned with the growing inability of the current education system in Cameroon to guarantee social and professional integration of most of its graduates, Sylvester co-founded Education for Creativity (EduCreate) under which he leads advocacy work and research on education for the gifted and talented, talent-based learning, and scientific and professional assessment of talents. This quest spurred him to take a self-sponsored research to Kenya from 26th July to 3th, 2019 to deepen his understanding of these education concepts and approaches through an immersion in the talent clinic in Nairobi and working sessions with the authorities of the African Federal for the Gifted and Talented in Nairobi Kenya.
Inspector Ngan Sylvester has been a frontline promoter and advocate of Cross-Border Legacy Foundation USA’s activities in Cameroon for the past two years; championing the Program related to the Gifts and Talent Clinic and Legacy Academy of Excellence and Development.
