KENYA YOUTH SUMMIT
On August 27th to 28th, 2020, youth from the local and global community will congregate in one place to have a conversation that will revolutionize Kenya, Africa and beyond.
In light of the current public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kenya Youth Summit 2020 Annual Meeting, previously scheduled to take place in Nairobi, will be an all-virtual event. The virtual meeting will take place August 27-28th .
Our objective remains unchanged: to Engage, Inspire and Empower youth.
Engage and leverage youth for solutions to local and global issues
Inspire and better inform youth to pursue dreams and lives of fulfilled aspirations
Empower youth through connections with successful role models by providing resources and opportunities to network, discuss and interact with leaders and young professionals from various settings and careers.
Young people from different countries and regions often share the same objectives and grievances usually linked by the negative impacts of globalization, poor governance, and unemployment; and are increasingly part of a common social culture as well. There is incredible, untapped potential of the African youth who largely hold the same ideas about how to transform our societies for the better through determination and innovative forms of problem-solving.
The two-day Kenya Youth Summit will focus on a wide variety of issues that face youth (e.g. education, employment/jobs (white collar and vocational; formal and informal jobs, entrepreneurship), health, ICT and social media, democracy (including participatory decision making), disruptive technologies, environment/climate change, and more).
We invite all youth, ages 18 and up, to join the discussion towards finding meaningful and lasting solutions. The Summit offers Youth the opportunities for internships (attachments), networking, one-on-one engagement with mentors/peers, and funding awards through the Competitive Startup Fund for startups/ideas that have the capacity to succeed in local or global markets, serving a public need or a promising community-based initiative.
The Youth Summit will be held, each day from 8:30 am to 5 pm, on Thursday, August 13th, 2020 and Friday, August 14th, 2020; followed by a Formal Gala on Friday evening (5:00 pm to 8:30 pm) where the recipients of the Competitive Startup Fund will be announced.
