About Us

Our Mission:

To empower and inspire lifelong learning, knowledge advancement and prepare the African youth in making  informed choices.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build one of the world’s leading resources for aiding and empowering young people of African descent.

Our Values:

BRAND STORY

Young people of African descent are often at risk of slipping through the cracks due to generational poverty, a lack of basic necessities, and limited access to learning resources.
At African Youth Advocate, we want to bridge gaps in support for young Africans worldwide by empowering them to reach their full potential. Our international nonprofit initiative based in the United States was created to empower African youth to envision and realize a better future for themselves.
We start by meeting their basic needs for food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, and hygiene necessities. Then we provide them with access to educational materials, employment counseling, life coaching, mentoring, and other multifaceted programs designed to enhance their total well-being. We aim to make a lifelong impact on their lives by guiding them toward meaningful and sustainable careers as they claim their birthright as our world’s future leaders. We also offer need-based financial assistance as a way to give a leg up to economically disadvantaged youth as we position them to focus on success without worry of financial hardship.
African Youth Advocate was founded by successful professionals of African descent who understand the unique needs of African youth and wanted to create an international network to empower their success.
We want to help Africa’s youth harness their full talent and potential. We are motivated by the fundamental idea that all young people, no matter their backgrounds or means, deserve the same chance at success as their peers. As such, we advocate for the social welfare and legal rights of young Africans to instill a sense of equity and inclusion.
Long term, we envision building empowerment hubs to serve as local learning centers equipped with books and technology to better serve young Africans in poverty-stricken areas.
Our ultimate goal is to show we care by investing in the lives of African youth, helping them build the healthy environments they need to thrive while inspiring them to transform their lives and communities as they build a better future for all.

CORE VALUES

At African Youth Advocate, we are grounded by the following core values

Equity

African Youth Advocate is an inclusive organization anchored in the universal principles of fairness, respect, and justice for all persons. We believe in leaving no African behind by advocating for their inclusion. We aim to build and maintain a welcoming community centered on kindness, compassion, and nonjudgmental support.

Diligence

We believe in working tirelessly and ardently to advance our mission. We strive to always follow through with what we say we’re going to do, when we say we’re going to do it. We always strive to carry out our work with the greatest responsibility and accountability.

Optimism

We promote positivity, optimism, and hope in everything we do. We believe in the power of simple encouragement to lift the spirits of young people while helping them believe in themselves as they meet the challenges they face in their daily lives. A little encouragement goes a long way in helping disadvantaged people find their way forward.

Empowerment

We believe in equipping the young people we serve with the training, tools, and sense of purpose necessary to take control of their personal and professional outcomes. When young people are empowered to take ownership, better outcomes are achieved all around.

Passion

We believe in fanning the flames of passion for our mission to transform the lives of young Africans. We encourage everyone involved in this journey to play their parts in advancing our mission with an unwaning enthusiasm and sense of purpose.
