The study sought to examine the influence of organizational factors on the implementation of the National Youth Policy in Kenya. The study was guided by the following three specific objectives: to investigate the influence of formal legal distance on the implementation of National Youth Policy in Kenya; to investigate the influence of organization autonomy on the implementation of National Youth Policy in Kenya, and to examine the influence of organizational culture on the implementation of National Youth Policy in Kenya. The study combined both qualitative and quantitative techniques in data analysis. The results revealed that the three variables depicted a significant influence on National youth policy implementation in Kenya. Organizational culture depicted a minimum influence on the policy implementation (beta value, 0.148) with organizational autonomy depicting the greatest influence of policy implementation (beta value, 0.318). In addition, the key informant findings revealed a positive relationship between the organizational factors and national youth policy implementation. The study concluded that formal legal distance, organizational autonomy, and organization culture are the main determinants of national youth policy implementation which is supported by the beta values 0.283, 0.318, and 0.148 respectively. The study recommends that the public sector should adopt effective organizational factors that positively influence national youth policy implementation. Additionally, studies should be conducted to examine the influence of corruption, leadership management on implementation of national youth policy.
