AYM Empowers and Mobilizes Africa’s Youth Through Employment

Twenty-First Century African Youth Movement (AYM)  exists to facilitate increased access for disadvantaged African youths to critical resources and opportunities required for enhancing their productivity and relevance to their nations and communities.

Our mission is to create jobs and employment for youths in Africa. With programs and initiatives in education, technology, agribusiness, eco-tourism, entrepreneurship and the creative arts, we work to revitalize the potentials of our communities and bring the populations social and political stability. AYM is an emerging initiative to primarily engage youths as change-makers in the rebuilding and development of African countries through innovative and progressive local community-driven programs and youth-focused enterprises.

Our vision is to reverse the social and economic marginalization of Africa through people, ideas, and resources.  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 the creation of 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 the stagnation, social and economic marginalization of Africa.

The Objectives Of AYM

To sensitize and raise the awareness of African youths on productive national and global citizenship.

To support African youths to acquire and build on sound social enterprise development and management skills.

To facilitate increased access for African youths to relevant social enterprise start-up and management resources.

To support and coordinate the evolution and strengthening of youth-focused social enterprise networks within African countries.
