Who We Are

Y-ACT, Youth in Action, was formed at Amref Health Africa by a group of young innovators in 2017 to address challenges prioritized by the youth. We have become one of the region’s most influential youth-led movements. Y-ACT provides tailored training, mentorship, coaching and coalition-building support to African youth advocates and youth organizations. We believe that Africa’s youth have a tremendous opportunity to shift in-country and regional policy landscapes, address challenges that the youth face, and achieve their full potential.
