About us
Transforming minds, rescuing a generation

Mission

Our mission is to build a responsible society by imparting values, life-skills, integrity and professionalism to teenagers, youth, and young career graduates in Africa through mentoring.

Vision

We envision a transformed and empowered youth who are productive and sensitive to the challenges of our society.

Aligning to Vision 2030

The Kenya Vision 2030 aspires to transform Kenya into an industrialized country by 2030. This vision can only be achieved if we purposely trained and prepared young people to choose careers and professions that are aligned to the vision. Our programs therefore are skewed towards developing this critical workforce. Thus, the interventions we have put in place through our programs are designed to inform, guide and assist students to make best and informed career and educational choices/decisions, based on the current trends and opportunities available.

Mentorship duration

Once enrolled to a program, it will take you six-months to one year to graduate, which will include training, capacity building, support forums, leadership training and one-on-one mentorship. We embrace all youth, regardless of their economic and educational background.
