NRCF Alumni Coordination Department has the goal of ensuring 75% alumni employment annually and has embarked on several activities to prepare for the year 2023. The department has hit the ground running and has made good progress.
The Alumni Department has developed strategies and policies for successful alumni engagement including the creation of robust networks with possible employers and partners to support the employment programs and activities.
The programs that are already in the implementation phases include Job Preparedness Skills training, Sales Academy training, Entrepreneurship Skills training, and a Techmate program. We will soon be adding an Apprenticeship program. In addition to these programs, plans are underway to increase alumni engagement through events and gatherings like the annual gathering, an alumni summer camp, and an alumni volunteer program.
In this quarter, the Alumni have collaborated and legally registered themselves as a youth group named the Ngong Road Alumni Youth Group. The group’s main objective is to raise funds for their business and offer each other psychosocial support.
The employment rate in this stands at 69% for all alumni, with 119 out of 173 having gainful employment as of November this year, according to the alumni annual survey done in July 2022, and unemployment follow-up done in October.
