African Youth News: 20 April 2017
Greetings YMCA family and friends,
These are exciting times for the YMCAs of Africa! We have launched the 2nd Career Manenoz today in Nairobi, Kenya. The breakfast launch included a panel of various expert industry leaders leading the discussions on youth opportunities, with engagement from different stakeholders. At the forefront of this skills harnessing and opportunity- linking is the connection to sustainable partnerships. Job creation in both formal and informal sectors requires knowledge of different industries which are perhaps not well-known or explored. Yet the reach and impact evidenced in hundreds of youth lives as shared during the launch discussions.
We have much more to learn! Much more knowledge and information to share! Implementing the Careers Expo & Beyond! is not without hard work, networking and identifying resources. Yet, already, it is growing in momentum far beyond the ordinary. Impact stories like that of Kevin Ogae Masero, a painter and decorator by profession, who studied his trade at the National Training Institute, Shauri Moyo shows us transformation is possible. The knowledge he received through the Entrepreneur Vibe session held last year is changing his business sense and skills for the better. We are also seeing increasing presence of partners who are committed to bridging gaps in youth empowerment, skills- building and entrepreneurship. Youth are challenged to package their ideas and potential to give solutions to diverse problems. The rally call to action is being heard!
Youth in the driver seat of the African Renaissance is a tangible reality as they seize the unique opportunities the YMCAs explore and empower them with.
SAVE THE DATE: 1 – 4 November 2017!
