African Youth News: 19 August
Yesterday we launched the YMCA Career Expo and Beyond campaign and dubbed it #CareerManenoz. Manenoz is a slang word referring to top issues, news, and stories, and it implies a desire to discuss and talk about important topics. The chair of the Kenyan Youth Enterprise Development Fund presided over the launch and will also be a speaker at the Expo which will be held in November. During the Expo we will bring together 3,000 young people, decision makers, and political, private, and public sector actors to discuss and connect youth to existing opportunities. Amongst others, we will have a specific focus on providing youth with disabilities the opportunity to access employment and finances, and will introduce policies for youth employment and internships. We will have a Stop Youth Poverty March on the second day of the Expo as a way to express the voices of the youth on their situation. Over the coming months we will be sharing the progress on the planning for the Expo and how we are preparing to move Beyond to the implementation of Youth Empowerment spaces. We are now looking for sponsors. Please do not hesitate to recommend any you may know who would be interested in supporting this event.
We are marching with #CareerManenoz
