The Story of the AYA

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. 

The AYA is an adinkra symbol that represents endurance and resourcefulness. For those who embrace this symbol it means they have outlasted many adversities against all odds.
We are a service organization committed to the empowerment of our local communities. Here at the AYA, we believe we can pour into the community what our individual experiences and tribe poured into us through story, resource sharing, and networking. We serve our local communities through various projects/campaigns, workshops, advocacy and so much more. It is through these acts of service we promote self empowerment, community building, financial literacy, health & wellness, and education.
