OUR MISSION is to provide experiential opportunities for skill application and development to international vol-unteers/interns who seek to be powerful change agents in Liberia’s postwar recovery. Youth Crime Watch of Liberia throught its Experience Liberia program wants to provide you with the opportunity to create sustainable positive change in the lives of Liberians while exploring traditional African life. Not only will your experience be meaningful in the eyes of others but you will also experience a culture and tradition like no other.
Youth Crime Watch of Liberia is an accredited youth organization established in 2004, to help address the need for grassroots participation in nation building, following the age-long civil conflict which nearly discriminated the population. We are dedicated to fighting illiteracy and promoting reconciliation, reconstruction, peace, development and better and healthier lifestyles in Liberia through crime prevention, youth empowerment and employment.
At the heart of Youth Crime Watch Liberia’s programs is a strategy or theory of change that recognizes the need for active, empowered and enabled youth citizens who have a channel for interaction with an accountable state and society with the goal of reducing and preventing crime. By enabling and empowering Liberian youth through experience (community development projects), opportunities (leadership), skill-based training (entrepreneurship), and access (knowledge, education and technology), we help to bridge power gaps while simultaneously decentralizing economic activities and post-war reconstruction efforts.
