Kenyan Youth Board | 7 years ago | Reply It's true that if the youth are equipped with the right market specific skills it would open up many doors for them as opportunities for getting jobs and competently using the skills acquired at the work place effectively. It is necessary to equip the youth with the relevant and specialized training to enable them to confidently take part in the growth and development of our country's economy and this is what we do a Kenyan Youth Board. We educate the youth members by providing effective entrepreneurial training courses that will impact the youth to hold the highest standard of work ethics and professionalism and in the end we do also provide industrial attachment and job opportunities. We also do provide to youth members effective entrepreneurship training courses and also do provide valuable information concerning trade and investment.
