Who We Are

A vision of empowering young people for the African renaissance

The Liberia YMCA was founded in 1881 by Bishop Samuel D. Ferguson, while on assignment in Harper, Maryland County.

In 1926, the YMCA was extended to Monrovia, the capital city. Our mission is uniting and empowering young people through investing in programs that promote self-development and service to the community as an extension of the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We are committed to our mission & vision

We take initiative

We are inclusive in our actions

We promote Integrity through our actions

We value and respect everyone we work with
