In 2018, the Youth Resource Centre hosted a number of visitors from across the country. In February, the team from Cuso International, Calabar, Cross River State visited the Centre. They wanted to understand the Centre's model of operation as they planned to establish models like YRC in the 14 local councils of Cross River State. The team of eight was fascinated by the daily activities and the various programs and events organised by the Centre. They promised to replicate the model of the Centre in their state. They were however impressed that YRC has been able to sustain her operations with funding from the founder and other well meaning individuals who believe in youth development.

Another very important group that visited the Centre was the executive members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria. The National Youth Council of Nigeria is the umbrella body of all youth associations within the country. It is an affiliate member of the World Assembly of Youths. The newly elected executives were excited about the performance of the Centre and her contributions to Youth Development in Nigeria that they had to visit the Centre from Abuja.

The group was taken on tour of the Centre by the Director, who also presented to the success story of the Centre since the commencement of selfless service delivery to the youths of the Bonny communities.
