Reflecting on the responses to the information sessions conducted during the Careers Expo; the Vibes and Hangouts sessions serve as powerful spaces of information sensitization and guidance. All facilitators provided input that is industry-specific, relevant and relational to career and entrepreneurship guidance. These important knowledge hubs, are vital for providing youth the insight to current trends, specialised fields and creative economic alternatives. Facilitators have further communicated their interest and support to the youth at large. Their many experiences in the fields of business and education provide invaluable knowledge resources which youth need.
The Careers Expo has already established a network of business support and stakeholders who have pledged substantive opportunities for youth in the form of internships. The vision is to create opportunities of connection for the youth in various avenues. While some of the opportunities provide educational career guidance, others address alternative options for trade skills. Business partners like Elgon Kenya, who have pledged 100 internship positions for youth, are key drivers in the African Renaissance dream. They, together with our other valued partners, make it possible for our young people to positively contribute to socio-economic growth of Kenya through acquiring skills for employment marketability.
Among our many valued supporters and partners, we remain grateful for the presence and support of our esteemed guests, Ms Brenda Muntemba (Zambian High Commissioner), Hon. Ekwee Ethuro (Honourable Speaker of Senate), Dr Mark Leleruk (Commissioner of Police) and media personality, Mr Jeff Koinange
The Beyond part of Careers Manenoz is already in motion. Sustainability is the impetus required on all linkages to opportunities to prepare our youth for the next important phase of their lives. Becoming citizens of the Africa we want.
