The Next Generation Kenya is seeking applications from suitable and qualified young Kenyans to form the project’s Youth Task Force.
Next Generation Kenya is a joint project of the British Council and the UK Department for International Development (DfID). It follows similar Next Generation projects in Tanzania, South Africa, Pakistan and Nigeria in researching the perceptions and aspirations of young people in countries experiencing youth bulges; producing recommendations for improved policies to capitalise on the potential of the next generation; and giving a voice to young people as they attempt to shape their countries’ future. The project combines policy-relevant research with a strategic communications campaign to disseminate the findings widely and use them to enhance young people’s ability to influence the policy environment.
The Next Generation Kenya Youth Task Force will be the public face and voice of the project.
Key aims of the task force:
- Use their expertise to help steer the project’s quantitative and qualitative research studies into the aspirations and opinions of young Kenyans
- Review the research findings to produce recommendations for policy
- Help disseminate the findings and recommendations to policy-makers and the public
