Asset based training and support to activate, inspire and sustain economically active, socially responsible citizens

We focus on building the inherent assets in young people in order to reverse negative trends affecting youth. Our programs assist youth to develop skills leading to future employment success and lasting impact within the communities they come from.
Our curricula focus on developing social and emotional skills that are associated with future employment success, social responsibility and personal well being.

91% of enke graduates are in education or employment, a success when compared to the national average of 69%. We owe this success to our leadership programs for high school and post-school youth as well as our specialized services.


We take youth unemployment very seriously. Through our interventions we initiate direct impact through proactive and remedial approaches to high rates of youth not in education, employment or training (or NEET for those who want the technical term).
