AYM Empowers and Mobilizes Africa’s Youth Through Employment

Mobilizing Africa’s unemployed and underemployed youth is the key to the continent’s economic growth and stability. AYM works to mobilize marginalized youth through education, training and creates entrepreneurial opportunities to help move communities away from poverty, disease, and hunger. AYM aims to establish personal empowerment and community resilience by energizing its critical youth population as change agents to reverse social, economic marginalization and stagnation.

Our mission is to educate and employ young people in technology, agribusiness, eco-tourism, entrepreneurship and the creative arts to revitalize the country’s potential and bring its population social and political stability.

The organization is an emerging national initiative, that will primarily engage youths as change-makers in the rebuilding and development of Sierra Leone through innovative and progressive local community-driven programs, and youth-focused enterprises.
