Transcend Academy: is YAI’s largest single initiative to date. This program focuses on establishing a modern school, which will run from grades 9 through 12 and will incorporate vocational training into the high school curriculum. The project addresses the issue Liberia currently faces where the country has a high rate of graduates but very few available jobs. Although there are technical jobs available, there is a shortage of qualified and well trained Liberians to fill these posts.
By combining a regular high school education with technical vocational training ensures that when Liberians graduate, they already have a skill that they can immediately put to work to earn and income, choose to go on to college to acquire more knowledge or do both.
Construction on the campus is expected to begin in early 2022.
