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.
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.
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.
