The Tujijenge Youth Empowerment Program (TUYEP) kicked off earlier this year in Subukia with 20 pioneering students between the ages of 19 and 25. This ten-month program offers a holistic approach to youth development, focusing on spiritual maturity and entrepreneurial and technical skills to improve employability and create wealth. TUYEP is the 2nd level of Expansion's education program. Students enrolled are graduates from the high school sponsorship program and youth from Subukia.
As TUYEP students enter the second phase of apprenticeship training, we wanted to share one young man named John's perspective on the program.
