Upfolio Resource Bank
The Upfolio Resource bank is an online compendium of digital resources in written, spoken and visual forms crowdsourced from volunteer contributors. The free resources cut across many work fields or niches, aiming to Fastrack the career journey of African youths like you.
We chose to embark on this project after surveying a sample group of our community, in which 91% noted that having enough information about their present career niche early enough would have significantly changed the current results.
It offers access to materials in a wide variety of fields such as Tech, business, finance and, as you may least expect, entertainment.
It is 100% free
All available materials on the resource bank are permissible for sharing.
The resources are well categorised, and you can conveniently find your needle in our haystack.
