In April, the team at Liberia Career Pathways embarked on a new partnership with Education Development Center (EDC) to implement a USAID-funded program that prepares high school dropouts for the job market or to enter entrepreneurship. Hosted at our Center for Career Discovery in Monrovia, 30 students received training in two curriculums, Work Ready Now and Be Your Own Boss, taught by members of the LCP team. Students learned essential employability skills, received guidance on job seeking, conducted market studies, and gained core entrepreneurial skills to start and manage their own businesses. Now, 28 students will graduate next week from this initial cohort. Many have already successfully interviewed for new jobs, and a handful of young adults have decided on the entrepreneurial direction they will be taking.

The initial interest in this program was overwhelming, which came as no surprise to the LCP team. 80 students applied for just 30 available seats. While we could not make room for all 80 students, we also refused to turn away the 50 students who were not accepted into the first cohort. Instead, we invited them into the Center to take advantage of our extensive college and career resources. Due to the success of this initial pilot program, our hope is to recruit these students for our next cohort.

This new effort is in addition to the already robust program offerings offered through the Center and at our Career Clubs embedded within schools. Thanks to investments from funders like you, we can continue to grow these essential programs and help fill the education gap in Liberia.
