About the ProgramYouth led initiatives have gained importance in Kenyan society by enhancing the involvement of the youth in the development process at the same time utilizing the skills and energies towards making the society a better place. The focus of youth led initiatives range in a wider range from rehabilitation to education, from environmental sustainability to economic development, from enterprise development to skills development. Hence the involvement of volunteers offers an opportunity to develop the potential of the youth hence the realization of sustainable development.

The program is designed to respond to the local youths' needs and assets. The KCEP project aims to empower youth to make sound career and life decisions as they transition from high school to the next phase of their lives. the project is building the capacity of local institutions and networks to sustain the much needed services.
