Youth unemployment and underemployment is a major development challenge around the world and particularly in Kenya which has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment globally. This case explores the CLA approach of Kenya Youth Employment and Skills Program (K-YES), a five-year program funded by USAID that enhances employment opportunities for unemployed and underemployed Kenyan youth (aged 18-35) who have not completed secondary education.
The case presented here demonstrates how allocation of time and resources at the outset of the activity to better understand the context, and continued reflection and evaluation with multiple stakeholders throughout the activity cycle, underscores and informs effective collaboration and intervention designs to strengthen a self-managed system of essential service delivery.
Within the past few years RTI has focused internally on intentionally growing our efforts to share and learn from each other across the organization, using a CLA approach to guide us.
This case reflects on how the partnership generated lessons and evidence on what’s happening and what’s working in a collaborative learning space to provide impetus for collaboration, learning and adapting.
