"The PYPP has proven to be an innovative program to build leadership, respond to capacity gaps, and employ promising Liberian graduates. It remains an essential component of our strategy to strengthen public sector capacity." — H.E. PRESIDENT ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF 


The President’s Young Professionals Program (PYPP) of Liberia is a prestigious and competitive two-year program that recruits and places recent Liberian university graduates in important government roles and provides them with training and mentorship as they support the government’s top priorities.

The PYPP was launched by H.E. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2009 and has become one of Africa’s most competitive programs for leadership in public service.
