About

Volunteering makes important economic and social contributions, contributing to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It can be both challenging and rewarding and require you to use your skills in a new context. You can also transfer useful knowledge while gaining a greater understanding of the issues affecting other people.

YPPD is further inspired by the conviction that volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling some of the daily challenges communities are faced with. Everyone can contribute their time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action and their combined efforts can be a significant force for achieving development which is anchored on placing people first.

YPPD seeks to provide our volunteers with valuable learning opportunities to increase their global consciousness, enhance communication and leadership skills, and gain real world experience. Our projects are anywhere from 2 weeks to 12 months long or more.

Yes, I recommend this program

My work with the Youth Partnership for Peace and Development was quite an awesome opportunity

As a young global citizen and change maker, I very much look forward to going back to Sierra Leone and then work with them to amplifying change together. I am glad I was part of the Ebola response process with the YPPD team of volunteers and staff.
I was even thrilled with the organization's HIV/AID education and outreach program which targeted schools and communities across six districts across Sierra Leone

What would you improve about this program?
Getting the require financing supports will greatly help the organization to continue touching more lives and ultimately improving communities.
