1. Our programmes are at grassroots in that volunteers day to day activities are carried out on the ground, in the midst of the community, and amongst local people. You will have the opportunity to volunteer with a number of local community-based organizations and personnel, including orphanages, churches, home-based care workers, social workers, hospitals, health center dispensaries, community centers, and schools.
  2. Our projects provide an opportunity to develop new skills and build on existing experience and knowledge.
  3. The management of Youths Organization has established a Volunteers Committee (comprised of 4 former volunteers). The committee works closely with management to advice on issues affecting the organization and volunteers. The focus of the committee is to represent the wishes of past, present and future volunteers in key decisions made by the organization. The committee also helps with complaints and queries from volunteers. We believe a robust quality assurance programme is important to operate a successful volunteer organization - hopefully this will give you confidence that you will be well looked after by Youths Organization.
  4. We operate a robust quality assurance programme. All of our homestays are assessed in accordance with a rigorous checklist of minimum standards that we require (covering cleanliness, location, home facilities, fluency in English and number of people in the home for example). Also, each programme that we offer has been assessed (in person) by 2 members of Youths Organization, including at least 1 member of our Volunteer Committee. These assessors have made sure that the programmes offered are genuine so that volunteer time will not be wasted. As already noted, we have also established a Volunteers Committee to work closely with management to advice on issues affecting the organization and volunteers.
  5. You will not be bored and you will not be sitting in an office far away from those that need your help. The volunteer work that you perform will be meaningful so will your experience with us.
  6. Our programmes provide assistance to those in need in a manner that encourages them to become self-sustaining (our greatest desire is that those that we help will eventually be able to help themselves and others). If you volunteer with us, you will be working on projects that will enable Kenyans to help themselves well after your departure from Kenya
  7. Our programmes offer the chance to volunteers give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them
  8. We offer a variety of extra Adventures for volunteers in Kenya including Maasai Mara safaris, hiking and biking trip through beautiful national parks, and weekend getaways to tropical beaches on the Indian Ocean. We also offer a range of mountain climbing trips, from Mt Longanot, to Mt Kenya, to Mt Kilimanjaro at no cost!
  9. We guarantee security and safety to our volunteers during their stay in Kenya by providing a social worker to accompany a volunteer throughout the volunteering period

  10. We have partnered with other trusted international volunteer organizations in UK (Christian Abroad ) and USA ( Universal Giving ) which you can also apply our projects through them.
