About

This is one organization where you will gain more knowledge while being a part of us. For instance, did you know that Liberia was the only African country founded by freed slaves from the USA in 1847? Did you know Liberia has the same flag as the USA but with one star? Did you know that more than 60% of Liberia's past presidents were Americans? Did you know Liberia is also the first African country to elect a female president?

DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT LIBERIA IS ONE OF TWO COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD WHERE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE LESS EDUCATED THAN THEIR PARENTS? YesLiberia intends right this wrong and we will need your help as a board member.

We only seek busy folks. Like you, each of our board members is professionally employed, but volunteers on our board. We also believe the busier the individual, the more effective he/she will be. That’s another reason why our monthly board meetings are all 45mins conference calls. Our board members are not only expected to attend meetings (conference calls), but they actively participate in the discussions. They lend their expertise-the main reason they were asked to join the board in the first place. Our annual two days board retreat-usually in September or October-is a requirement for all board members. Currently, we are seeking 2 candidates to join our Board. As our board member, your role will involve:

  1. Voting on issues discussed and holding the board chair accountable to the bylaws
  1. Actively participate at or in all virtual meetings. This requires your ability to not only suggest or develop strategies, but to help implement those strategies effectively
  1. A little outreach; share networks and open doors for the organization; invite others to contribute
  1. Be a good advocate, build relationships, and say thank you to donors and supporters
  1. Make a personal contribution to meet your financial commitment to the cause

If you can help in most of these areas, we invite you to apply.
