Advocacy. Empowerment. Mentorship.
Our mission is to create an inclusive and prosperous society where young people live fulfilled lives through advocacy, empowerment and mentorship. The youth are our future — our goal is to uplift our youth and brighten the future for our society.
Youth Alive! Kenya is a Youth Serving and Youth-Led Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that advocates for and supports youth participation in development processes? We envision “A society where young people are empowered to realize their full potential”. The organization currently works with over eighty-four (84) youth organizations in twelve (12) Counties in Kenya, Kiambu County being among them.
The organization was founded in 1999 with a vision of uplifting youth to overcome their unique challenges and actively participate in the formation of their society & country. We collaborate with global partners, donors and stakeholders to empower youth and vulnerable members in society, and facilitate strong business & cultural networks between youth in East Africa and the world.
Y.A.K. works in partnership with youth organizations, the private sector, and the government to advocate for youth responsive policies, legislation, and programs within Kenya in particular and Africa in general. It has promoted and protected youth’s rights, and empowered youths and vulnerable groups in the spheres of socio, economic and political development through the implementation of projects focusing on three thematic pillars; Good governance, Economic empowerment and livelihoods, and Social well-being & Equity.
