training is offered completely free
The Youth Centre was the first project implemented by Community Outreach in
Emuhaya, Kenya in 2004. It provides free training to young people who would otherwise be at home
unemployed. It is also a place for young people to develop their own activities such as drama, sports
and choir and to socialize. It is the only centre of its kind in the district.
Since it opened, more than 250 young
people have been trained in basic computer
skills. Several young people have been able to find jobs in nearby towns
using the skills they learned at the Youth Centre.
