HOMELAND POLICY AGENDA

ULAA must build partnerships and collaborations between home and host country institutions that promote the development goals of Liberia. Our Agenda for Liberia along these lines will be the area of vocational/technical education and voters’ education.

VOCATIONAL/TECHNICAL EDUCATION

The focus of this effort is to support programs that will provide skills training for youths and young adults between six to twenty-four months period. Emphasis will be in the areas of carpentry, masonry, construction, and other technical areas.

ADOPTION OF PRIMARY SCHOOL

Explore efforts to adopt a primary school in Liberia in which the Union will undertake activities that enhance the learning environment. The goal is to adopt one school in the first year on a trial basis, and two schools in the second year of our administration.

ESTABLISHMENT OF UNIVERSITY TO UNIVERSITY RELATIONSHIPS

Explore the possibility of creating academic and institutional relationships between targeted U.S. universities and Liberian universities similar to sister-city relationships. The goal is to promote intellectual exchanges and study-abroad programs.

VOTERS’ EDUCATION

Due to the importance of voters’ education in the democratic process, our Administration will develop voter education programs for the pending elections in Liberia as part of our commitment to advocate for and promote democratic governance in Liberia.
