YCI Country Information

Opening ceremony in Dakar 2014
YCI Senegal was launched in the capital Dakar in February 2014 with one participating hotel, the Radisson Blu Dakar, and SOS Children's Village Dakar as local non-profit partner.

YCI Senegal was YCI's first programme piloting a new operating model whereby a hotel is given a licence to run YCI by themselves. The YCI Global Team still provided support and quality assurance standards, but the reins were very much handed to the participating hotel. This new approach - championed by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group - allowed the business to truly take ownership of the programme and shape it in accordance with its core company strategy.
