Our Areas of Work
We are serving from last 7 years.
The African Youth Commission (AYC) is an independent Pan-African youth network founded by youth leaders to foster synergy amongst youth and youth organisations on the African continent and Diaspora.
AYC facilitates the collective participation and engagement of young people in official, formal and informal avenues of policy design, implementation, monitoring, follow-up, and review at all levels.
AYC consolidates youth voices through grassroots organisations linkages to build a strong youth movement on the continent through our national consortium platforms.
Impactful youth engagement recognises and seeks to change the power structures that prevent young people from being considers as key stakeholders and drivers o f their own needs and priorities.
Through workshops, trainings and experience sharing, we provide and facilitate engagement of young people in various advocacy processes to expand their knowledge skills and experience in policy influencing processes as well as key frameworks such as African Youth Charter and Agenda2030 & Africa We Want - Agenda2063
We provide young people a platform for dialogue to create an evidence base for best practices through joint learning, collaboration and partnerships and joint programming build, manage and transfer knowledge to inspire local led action.
