Youth Action International-Liberia
2nd Floor, Fofana Bldg.
YAI-Liberia will significantly expand its programs in 2012. With a new grant from Chevron, YAI will open new sub-offices in more parts of rural Liberia. The new programs will focus heavily on providing training, employment and sustainable livelihood for young people. YAI will also extend its early childhood development and health initiatives for thousands of children in rural Liberia.
In addition, YAI will open its first African high school and college chapters to engage young people in building a culture of volunteerism and civic responsibility.
