DYA Programs

1) Kenya Youth Empowerment Project (KYEP)

This project was implemented on pilot basis in three counties namely; Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu up to February 2016. The intention of the project was to address youth unemployment through training and internship opportunities for youth out of school. The project was implemented by the Directorate in liaison with Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KPSA) sponsored by the World Bank. The coordination Unit is based at the Directorate.

2) Kenya Youth Employment & Opportunities Project (KYEOP)

Upon good results of KYEP implementation there were negotiations with the World Bank for another phase. This was agreed upon although there was a shift of the targeted youth to those who drop out of school up to secondary school. KYEOP cover all the 47 counties with effect from March 2016. There will be specific preference to bring all marginalized and vulnerable communities on board to ensure that they are not left out.

3) Youth Empowerment Centres

The government has established Youth Empowerment Centres in over 100 Constituencies where many programmes can be undertaken. Youth Empowerment Centres serve as one stop shops and business information centres as well as mentorship, vocational and entrepreneurial skills development centres in all counties.

4) Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO)

AGPO was established as an avenue through which the youth, women and persons with disability could access and take advantage of the 30 per cent government procurement reservation scheme. The AGPO platform registers and pre-qualifies the youth, women and persons with disability so that they can access government tenders and contracts.
