Youth Action International’s priority programs for education are as follows:
LIBERIA EARLY CHILDHOOD INITIATIVE (Mother Goose Time): Sharing the belief that a strong early foundation is critical to the long-term growth and development of young people, YAI continues its Mother Goose Time program. Since the program started in 2009, we have successfully trained more than 2,500 teachers and provided educational supplies to 75,000+ pre-primary school children.
In the past, YAI held one major annual training for up to 500 teachers, but this year we reduced the number of participating teachers to 75 and spread out the trainings with multiple sessions. The teachers also received Mother Goose Time educational materials (school in a box) for about 2,500 students.
