Who We Are

Twenty First Century African Youth Movement (AYM) empowers and mobilizes Africa’s youth through employment in technology, agriculture, education, ecotourism, entrepreneurship, and the arts. It is currently tackling Sierra Leone’s post-civil war youth unemployment challenge by developing the talent and skills of 15-35 year olds to create self-sufficiency, economic stability, community prosperity and social progress to establish long-term peace. AYM plans to expand its country-level support in Liberia, Ghana, and Gambia by the end of 2019.
