However according to our research on the age and type of work done from an age bracket of 5-10, 11-15 and 16-20, we find a changing trend on career choice and attitude towards careers. Those who became exposed to challenges and even became subjects of poverty or work have developed skills and hopes of becoming apt social workers. Those who view that social disintegration and problems are cause by the government have sought to become part of the government so as to address the same.
The younger the person became exposed to social work the more he seeks to become a social worker. If he saw opportunity within the area affected he seeks business and so forth.

World Visions equates this hypothetical context and comparatively aim at building capacity rather than building career persons. Capacity then becomes a driver in the perspective of what the youth can for themselves if the job market was saturated and opportune was minimal. Volunteer ship, program management, capacity building lecturers and boards and also active roles in socio economic activities using the principals of community empowerment compose the vast portfolio of World Vision slot the youth are working and participating in.
