The Liberia Child Soldiers Program is the first of its kind launched by The Liberia Coalition Project. The Liberia Coalition Project is an Intervention, Prevention and Intensive Rehabilitation Residential program for "Child Soldiers" and children affected by the trauma of the civil war in Liberia, who, when given comprehensive support to insure their healthy personal development and rehabilitation have an increased possibility of being a community asset and accepted into Liberian society.

The program is run by a core group of professional Liberians with extensive experience in running, among others, United Way Agencies that address problems similar to the Liberian problem. The goal of the Liberia Coalition Project is to provide the on going leadership, direction and support that is often lacking for "exploited and at risk" children/young adults and their families during their most difficult years of development.
