Outputs and Key Activities:

The project will train National Youth Volunteers (NVs) in Peacebuilding and Leadership (3weeks) and sector specific support (3 weeks) including Education, Health and Social Welfare service delivery, Agriculture and Youth Center management. The NYSP will have both public sector service delivery and private sector development outputs depending on the sector area. The Agricultural sector will support an additional 500 Youth under “NYSP” rural livelihoods projects, including youth farming cooperatives and swamp rehabilitation projects. The MoYS currently has the Youth Centers, which will each benefit from 2 NVs who can deliver computer literacy training, assist with resource management and operations, and deliver peacebuilding and leadership skills development.

Finally, the project will develop a Business and Technical Skills component and private sector development in the form of an internship programme with major corporations and concession holders in Liberia, as well as developing employment opportunities for “at-risk youth” with small and medium enterprises. This component will require research and development, to be implemented fully in the second year of the NYSP.
