Bill Rogers Youth Sports & Development Center- Kakata, Liberia

Nestled amongst the rolling hills of Kakata, Liberia, the first ever Bill Rogers Youth Sports & Development Center will sit on 25 acres of land donated to the foundation by city leaders.

The center will boast the following amenities and features:

The goal of the center is to provide a safe environment to serve as an outlet for disenfranchised Liberian Youth to assemble, express themselves, and develop athletically, educationally and emotionally. As we help these youth explore their full potential in various areas, we will seek to connect them to opportunities both locally and around the world for them to attend college and continue their development.

In some cases it will serve as a residential facility for those athletes showing particular promise who will continue to develop and be transported to school.

In other cases it will serve as an after school enrichment opportunity for students from many schools in the 10 to 15 mile radius of the facility. Those students will have access to programming in the areas of homework assistance, arts, sports, athletic training, etc. They will also not leave the facility without a free hot meal every day.

The secondary purpose of the center will be to serve as a community hub complete with a dedicated area to be used for a monthly farmers market, and a Palaver Hut for community leaders to congregate. The center will also be available for rental use as a state of the art conference center for NGOs, area businesses and organizations. It will also be available for graduations and other school related events.
