Out-of-school youth in Kenya interested in participating in private sector-based training and internship programme have till March 14, 2014 to send in their applications.
Application forms to this Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA)-organised initiative can be downloaded from kepsa.or.ke or planning.go.ke websites.
Hard copy application forms are available at the Sub-county Youth offices in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu counties. In addition, there is an online application portal on the two websites above for those who wish to make online applications.
Applicants will fill the application form for one of the three locations depending on where they wish to undertake their internship in the event that they get selected.
To be eligible, applicants must:
a) Be between 15 and 29 years of age;
b) Have a minimum qualification of KCPE;
c) Not be currently in school/college;
d) Have been out of school for at least one year;
e) Not be currently working;
f) Be of Kenyan nationality; and,
g) Not have been selected in previous cycles.
Proof of eligibility will be required before enrollment into the program. As the internship is eight months in length and full attendance is required throughout, youth are required to ensure that they do not have conflicting commitments before applying.
KEPSA says only successful applicants will be contacted.
