Pres. Sirleaf Urges Graduates To Be Refined Examples Of Leadership

MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) -  President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has challenged the fourth graduating class of the President’s Young Professional Program (PYPP) to continue to be the refined examples that epitomize leadership.

“This is only the beginning; we are counting on your commitment and expertise, and you must remain focused on the long-term goals with emphasis on integrity, professionalism and ethics for yourselves and country,” President Sirleaf said.

She also urged the Civil Service Agency (CSA) to ensure that PYPP extends its training in other limited skilled areas, including entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors, and teachers, that can be absorbed in other government parastatals.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the statement when she made special remarks at the graduation of Class Four of the PYPP in the C. Cecil Dennis Auditorium of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday, April 8, 2015. 

“Today we celebrate your accomplishment as the Fourth Class of PYPPs. Collectively, you have successfully completed two years of service, mentoring, and training. We congratulate you for being there, for getting it done and for doing well,” the Liberian leader said.

She announced that the graduating PYPPs will be absorbed by the Civil Service Agency that is working closely with the respective ministries and agencies to finalize arrangements for their transition.

Class Four constituted 15 graduates assigned at the Ministries of Finance and Development Planning, and Gender, Children and Social Protection, National Investment Commission, National Housing Authority, and the Liberia Maritime Authority; five have been awarded scholarships and are pursuing graduate studies in the People’s Republic of China and United States of America. 

Since the launch of the program in 2009, government continues to receive encouraging feedbacks from ministries, agencies and others who interact with these young people.

The Program has become one of the outstanding career development and leadership training programs for public service, as it continues to make an impressive impact on the work across Government.
