Young Africa Centre

Empowering the youth

Africa has the fastest-growing youth population in the world with the Population Research Bureau predicting that the continent will account for 42% of the world’s youth by 2030. With this in mind, The Africa Centre is in no doubt about the critical role that young people will play in shaping and securing the future of the charity. Having recently launched an exciting new home for contemporary African culture and heritage in London and currently developing its future programmes, the Centre is keen to create a space for young people to freely express themselves, share ideas, and blossom.

Get involved

The Young Africa Centre (YAC) is a vibrant group of conscious young people (18-30) and we are currently recruiting new members in preparation for a relaunch later this year. The group is drawn together by a shared love and passion for all things Africa.

Our Mission

  • To create value-led opportunities and support each other with critical tools and experiences that lead to positive outcomes.
  • To challenge the existing misconceptions and stereotypes about African culture and heritage in the UK.
  • To create relevant and compelling content that promotes safety and a healthy exchange of ideas leading to happier and more fulfilled lives
