“Just to mention but a few, 80 percent transition to other disciplined services, labour export to Europe amongst others,” a statement from NYS read in part. 

On November 2023, President William Ruto directed that NYS trainees be given priority during police and military recruitment.

“Recognizing the place of youths in national transformation in general, and that of NYS in powering the plan in particular, we have embarked on a strategic reengineering of the National Youth Service to enhance the capacity of the institution to take up a greater number of trainees,” said president stated.

The Head of State noted that the move would enable the institution to position itself on the pathway of financial sustainability through revenue generation to the country.
