Pages: 31-37
This paper sought to re-evaluate value systems for Kenyan youths in order to experience social transformation. This discourse takes a moralist perspective and believes that there is an ideal body of values, one that over-rides others. In this paper, it would be appropriate to ask pertinent questions such as; what forms societies’ value systems? What value systems are there for Kenyan youths? How can value systems of youths be useful for social transformation? The first two questions concern a present analysis of value basis of societies while the last question is a positivist futuristic question of building a gap. Using a qualitative approach, this study sought for relevant literature from other scholarly articles which formed the basis of conclusions and recommendations. In overall sense, value systems are good, and if re-evaluated, social transformation is bound to occur. This transformation is likely measured by the meaningful socio-eco-political input to the society and the acceptance thereof. Value systems of Kenyan youths have been influenced by; one, familial relations; two, peer pressure; and three, the external factors. This study recommends that for social transformation to occur, re-evaluation of such value systems ought to take place both horizontally and vertically.
