How did National Youth Forum begin? Following post election violence in 2008, that saw a majority of Kenyan youth profiled either as victims or perpetrators, a couple of youth leaders drawn from grassroots organizations representing different ethnic, religious, gender and political backgrounds came together to facilitate the process of reconciliation and peace building through inter-ethnic dialogue forums. The initiative successfully held 20 grassroots forums on reconciliation and peace building in the villages and towns that were perceived to be violence hotspots in the wake of the post poll crisis. During evaluation of the peace building activities, the youth leaders agreed to build on the successes achieved in their 8 month program by initiating a national youth forum. The youth forum was to be a platform where youth can come together and synergize their separate youth initiatives so as amplify their voice on a national platform. What is National Youth Forum? The National Youth Forum (NYF) is a youth driven national space aimed at breaking new ground for Kenyan youth’s aspirations to build a new nation from the grassroots. The NYF initiative that started in 2008 is the fastest growing youth movement in Kenya, bringing together over 20,000 grassroots youth organizations and youth initiatives. The movement already has a subscriber base of over 2.5 million youth spread throughout the country and across religious, political, gender, cultural and ethnic divides. The current focus of the NYF is to unite and engage youth in the transformation of the Kenyan nation through active participation in the ongoing implementation of the new constitution and institutional reforms.
