In Liberia, youth unemployment remains the crisis of our time. Creating real employment for young people is vital for peace, security and economic transformation of the state. 70% of the youth are said to be unemployed, may not because there are no jobs, but also because they have no basic training of employable skills and no means of creating jobs for themselves.
