AYAnet has been re-launched and is intended to bring a new dimension to the awards and to give young African people more opportunities to get involved. We want to show everyone just how many groups of young African people are doing extraordinary things for their communities: leading the way, crossing divides, building bridges between young people and adults, and making their communities stronger and safer.

Each year we run the African Young Achievers Awards, an opportunity for exceptional young people to be commended for their amazing achievements in one of five categories: leadership, the arts, sports, community, and environment. The prize includes a unique one year package of support and development opportunities to enable these young people to develop and grow. By showcasing the achievements of young people we hope to inspire future Young Achievers and Leaders.

THE AWARDS CELEBRATE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HAVE:

  • Shown innovation or creativity in their volunteering
  • Demonstrated leadership in creating and developing projects
  • Used their energy, commitment and enthusiasm to raise awareness
  • Created something worth replicating elsewhere and inspired others
  • Demonstrated a willingness to develop their talents into new areas
