Youth Rising Mentoring Conference
In 2009, Rebuild Africa sponsored a conference called “Youth Rising” where approximately 30 Liberian university students came together with their peers from universities in the US and Europe who were working in Liberia. Attendees heard inspiring talks given by local leaders in government, business and non-governmental agencies.
Rebuild Africa has also sponsored several internships for our scholarship students who are attending nursing school, seminary and other university degree programs. During these internships, scholarship recipients have led youth education programs, health clinics and public health outreaches in HIV prevention, and Bible retreats for youth.
Rebuild Africa plans to sponsor more service internships in 2013 as well as future "Youth Rising" programs that will provide training in job skills as well as inspire students to serve their communities in their careers.
