M&E tools include: pre and post student and teacher questionnaires, annual and quarterly reports, and visits to the schools every week by JA staff, alumni, and mentors. Each school has a patron whose main responsibility is to run the club and report to JA Kenya secretariat directly.

Planned Goals and Milestones

During inception the program was private sector driven with mentors being drawn from private sector to run the club. As the number of school increased and after partnering with the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology, schools have owned the program and now it's a school driven program in which this strategy has led to growth of schools from 10 to 300.
