Capacitor help

No, individual components in the kit will have different V ratings. See if the ad had any details as to what it includes. EDIT: Look at the picture, apparently it comes with several different voltage rating for each uF rating. You can read the V and uF rating in the pic.

Every capacitor has a maximum voltage rating. Exceed the rating at your own peril.
Good engineering practice recommends derating the max voltage by 50%-80%, also depending on the physical dimensions that you are willing to accept. There are other parameters one should consider. Temperature plays an important role for long term reliabilty. Other factors such as ESR (effective series resistance), ripply voltage, and AC reactance are also important.
