Back to School in Monrovia, Liberia
Doubling Our Efforts to Recover COVID-19 Learning Loss
Students in Liberia, like many other poor economies, have suffered many setbacks these last two academic years due to the international COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of COVID-19 fell unevenly, deepening educational disparities and impeding opportunities and achievement for Liberian students.
The two years preceding COVID-19, students enrolled in Liberia Career Pathways’ programs did above average in every academic category, earning high marks in standardized public exams and graduating high schools prepared to enroll in post-secondary education including vocational training programs. However, Liberian students have very limited learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Therefore, during COVID when lockdowns were imposed and schools closed, learning opportunities ceased for many students, setting them back in an already underprivileged education system.
Serving 500+ students in Career Clubs
Now that COVID-19 restrictions are easing, Liberia Career Pathways is working diligently to get our students back on track as much as possible. Our vision is to increase student enrollment in Career Clubs dramatically over the next five years and expand to additional sites across Liberia. We cannot increase our efforts without your support. Please join us in lifting Liberian students as we work with students to prepare them for Liberia’s workforce.
