Abstract

No country is known to have ever developed without a solid pool of technically competent people. Entrepreneurship training has been highlighted by many scholars and government policy papers as a major non financial promotional programme that can effectively change youth’s perspective from white collar jobs to self-employment. Its implementation could enable youth to scan their own environment for business opportunities, use local resources to creatively and innovatively start a practical business with whatever amount of capital they have. If everyone can embrace this innovation; our country can make great strides in economic development and be a beautiful land to live in. A trained youth becomes more innovative. He/she would be able to scan hisher environment to identify the missing gap. Irrespective of the little resources he/she has, he/she would be able to marshal resources to start own enterprises for profits. He/she is therefore able to see the challenges he/she is facing as sources of opportunities and not threats. This changes his/her character from a frustrated youth to a rejuvenated youth. Drug abuse and crimes would become a thing of the past as he/she would be able to turn round his environment, start own enterprises, increase his/her earnings, create jobs for others and help Kenya achieve its Vision 2030.
