The 2019 Kenya Population and Housing Census (KPHC) estimates that the population aged 35 years and below accounts for 75% of Kenya’s population. When appropriately tapped into such a demographic structure presents a “demographic dividend” that would contribute to the realization of the UN Agenda 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals). However, an emerging challenge impeding the conversion of the “youth bulge” into a “demographic dividend” is the high unemployment rate which has been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the lack of experience and mismatch between skills and job openings further compound the youth unemployment challenge. A variety of sectors report not filling available jobs with recent graduates on account of applicants having insufficient skills.
