FBNBank, a financial giant, has demonstrated its dedication to youth development by sponsoring the 2023 National Youth Conference, held at the University of Ghana's Athletic Oval, Legon. The conference, themed “Reformed Youth, Reformed Ghana,” focused on training the youth for socio-economic development and was organized in collaboration with the National Youth Authority and the International Youth Fellowship.
The conference aimed to equip the youth with leadership skills crucial for the nation's progress. Victor Yaw Asante, Managing Director of FBNBank, highlighted the bank's recognition of the pivotal role played by the youth in nation-building. He emphasized the importance of providing the youth with the necessary skills for personal development and global competitiveness.

These initiatives aim to support employee engagement, motivation, and increased productivity across all levels of employees within the organization.”
Expressing gratitude for the opportunity to support the 2023 National Youth Conference, Asante hoped that FBNBank's contribution would aid the National Youth Authority in its crucial work with Ghanaian youth.
