About

Founded in 2009 by EPL’s Executive Director, Betsy Williams, The President’s Young Professionals Program (PYPP) of Liberia is a prestigious and highly-selective two-year program that recruits and places recent Liberian university graduates into government fellowships. PYPP prepares highly qualified Liberian youth for leadership in public service and equips them with the tools to contribute to the overall development of Liberia.

Today, PYPP has recruited and placed 140+ Liberian leaders into civil service positions, 90%+ of whom continue to serve in the Government of Liberia post-fellowship.

During the program, fellows gain the skills they need to support the government’s top priorities, while mobilizing their leadership journeys. After program completion, alumni become part of a lifelong network.
