Challenge

Over 500,000 Liberian youths between the ages of 18-30 years have not completed high school or gain any employable skills. Though the government has developed different instruments to fill the gap, it remains a substantial financial burden. Youths often get frustrated and disenfranchise due to their limitations. This summer camp will create space for young people to share peer experiences and develop innovative ideas. The summer camp will also teach them about resilience and build self-esteem.

Solution

This project will share a series of experiences and lectures on different topics to build confidence in the youth's ability to think of positive activities and cope with life's challenges. The camp will also teach strategies on how they can be happy and live a successful life. The camp will make them feel a spirit of belonging and how to assert their needs and desires. They will learn how to be rational, creative, independent, and the ability to manage change and learn from mistakes.

Long-Term Impact

This summer Camp will teach 500 youths different strategies on how to cope with challenges such as tragedies, disenfranchisement, frustration, etc. The camp will educate youth on how to form nurturing relationships and a drive to express their true nature and the sense of richness within them. It will also educate them on how to develop respect for others. The project will also improve youth's unconscious behavior, make them feel better, and live better.
