Global Gateway: Liberia Sparks Student Discussion

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and Civitas Associates recently took the Global Gateway program to St. Louis where they engaged hundreds of students in a discussion about Liberian child soldiers.

Freelance reporter Ruthie Ackerman and Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer presented information on the plight of former child soldiers in Liberia and elsewhere in west Africa at seven high schools and one middle school. This Global Gateway: Liberia initiative has sparked discussion among students from many different countries and perspectives.
