The President’s Young Professionals Program (PYPP) in collaboration with the Civil Service Agency (CSA) has officially launched the recruitment exercise of recent Liberian college graduates to form class eight of the program.

The PYPP was launched in 2009, and stands as a model for developing excellence in public service leadership. The recruitment targets recent university graduates not exceeding more than 5 years since graduation from any discipline.
Speaking Thursday at the Ministry of Information Cultural Affairs and Tourism regular briefing in Monrovia, the executive director of the program, Hh Zayzay explained that the exercise will recruit 20 exceptionally talented recent Liberian university graduates with a minimum grade point average of 3.00.
According to him, the applicants will be screened through a rigorous, impartial and merit-based process. “We therefore invite all qualified and interested recent university graduates who are desirous and committed to working for the government of Liberia to apply”, he added.
Zayzay emphasized that finalists will be placed in government ministries and agencies where they will be trained and mentored for two years and subsequently be absorbed as civil servants.
He maintained that interested applicants should have a reasonable mix of the following: a history of service to community or school through involvement in extracurricular activities; be law abiding Liberians determined by a clean criminal background check; not older than 35 years as of December 31, 2017; recent up to 5 years college or university graduate with first degree in any discipline and a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00.
He further that applicants must have strong written and verbal English communication skill and able to work under pressure in a fast-paced professional working environment, punctual and reliable with a commitment to learning and self-improvement amongst others.
Zayzay lamented that the PYPs are placed at various ministries and agencies to provide additional support to these entities by performing varieties of critical tasks as needed.
He affirmed that the long term goal of the program is to create the next generation of qualified professionals who are able and committed to working for the government of Liberia, thereby increasing public sector capacity and contribution to good governance and strong leadership.
PYPP is a registered Liberian non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan organization that is filling a critical capacity and leadership gap in public service and creating a new generation of professionals who will promote good governance and increase delivery of services and sustain democratic gains.
PYPP is a prestigious two-year fellowship that recruits, selects and places recent Liberian college graduates in important government roles and provides them with training and mentorship as they support government’s top priorities.
In its first six years, the program has recruited, selected, trained and placed over 120 young leaders, and 95 percent of them continue to work in their assigned ministries and agencies.
Most importantly, these young professionals are poised to become the next generation of leaders in the civil service, quickly building Liberia’s capacity and establishing a cadre of talented young people in the government.
