ABSTRACT 

The general objective of the study was to establish the relationship between youth involvement and project sustainability in rural areas in Kisojo Sub-county, Kyenjojo district. The specific study objectives were; to determine the level of youth involvement in rural areas in Kisojo subcounty; to determine the level of project sustainability in rural areas in Kisojo Sub-county; and to determine the relationship between youth involvement and project sustainability in ru:al areas in Kisojo Sub-county; and to determine the relationship between youth involvement and project sustainability in rural areas in Kisojo sub-county. A cross sectional survey research design, combined with quantitative research design were used . The sample consisted so respondents selected using purposive and census sampling techniques amongst youth and the community mostly in rural areas; in Kisojo Sub-county. Data was collected using questionnaires and presented on tables using Microsoft excel. The level of youth involvement in rural areas is high in the informal sector like small scale farming, bodaboda riding, brick making, small scale trading, and the formal sector like carpentry and joinery, community based officers and the other government positions. The level of youth involvement in rural areas is determined by varying government support services, variations in skills acquired from education, varying operational costs, variations in accessibility to financial services, varying physical abilities, variations in demands and personal desires, varying attitudes towards work, Rural —urban migration levels, varying accessibility and varying political situation. The level of project sustainability in rural areas, counts for about 50% as being low and somehow intermediate, which implies sustainability of projects in rural areas is low. The levels of project sustainability in rural areas is determined by government involvement, community involvement and participation, level of institutionalization, source of project funding, educational and literacy levels of members, the political situation in the area, and attitudes of members towards work.

The relationship between youth involvement and project sustainability in rural areas portrays that youth participation enhances the sustainability of the youth development projects and this can only be achieved through a youth-centered development. Also study forwarded recommendations for the youth, community, government, and other policymakers to take steps to ensure stable youth involvement and project sustainability in rural areas.
