PROJECT ACTIVITIES : What outcomes will our project achieve? Youth Entrepreneurship and Leadership Development program will improve young people’s employability prospects by preparing them for quality jobs and helping others succeed as entrepreneurs. A staggering number of young people in Kenya are unable to find decent work. At the same time, employers cite lack of skills as a major impediment to hiring youth for those jobs that do exist. Working to fill this gap, we will equip youth with life skills and technical know-how, while connecting them to the mentors, internships, and job placement services they need to succeed in the job market. We will also help youth employ themselves and create new jobs by training them to be entrepreneurs and linking them to the capital needed to start new businesses. Using our proven program model as a guide, we will collaborate with institutions across sectors to focus greater attention and resources on combating youth unemployment in Vihiga County. VOLUNTEER TASKS : • Teaching pupils at the Primary School • Training community based organization on income generating activities • Design project papers for potential funding for community based organizations • Training on leadership development and mentoring • Submit Project Report to KVDA.
