Youth Action International helps rebuild countries damaged by war by providing opportunities to young people.

The memories of civil war in Liberia prompted Mr. Weeks to create The Children Disarmament Campaign, which sought to remove guns from the hands of children. His work lead him into direct conflict with the Liberian government of Charles Taylor. Mr. Weeks discusses this experience and his eventual flight from Liberia.
