PYPP Trains 103 To Up Capacity At Ministries, Agencies - Official

By Stephen N. Sonpon

MONROVIA, November 10 (LINA) - The Executive Director of the President’s Young Professionals Program (PYPP), Hh Zayzay, has disclosed that 103 persons have been trained to strengthen the capacity of over 25 government ministries and agencies. 

Zayzay said 95 percent of the President’s Young Professionals (PYPs) are accelerating a shift towards the value of strong leadership, transparency and meritocracy, all of which will strengthen the country’s public sector capacity for decades to come.

Making the disclosure Thursday at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia, the PYPP official said the entity aims to place 100 more young professionals in key government roles to help create a tipping point in good governance. 

According to Zayzay, the PYPP is demand-driven and designed to meet the needs of the government and seeks to achieve three objectives, including creating job opportunities for highly qualified Liberian youth and facilitating the transfer of knowledge from current professionals to the next generation of Liberian leaders.

“Strengthening Liberia's public sector capacity by proactively creating a pool of eager and qualified young Liberians is another objective of the PYPP,” Zayzay pointed out.

He explained that the PYPP was launched by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf seven years ago to address the capacity gap in the civil service, noting that the program has proven to be a competitive process of providing job, mentoring and training for young Liberian university graduates.
