Y-ACT, Youth in Action, was formed at Amref Health Africa in 2017 by a group of young innovators 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 organizations. We believe Africa’s youth have a tremendous opportunity to shift in-country and regional policy landscapes, address their challenges, and achieve their full potential. Our three geographical locations are in East, West, and Southern Africa.
We’ve enlisted a dedicated team of Qualified Professionals with deep industry experience and technical expertise to manage a multitude of tasks ranging in complexity and size.
While they’ve transitioned from their official roles at Y-ACT, these incredible experts periodically provide technical insights to Y-ACT, empowering us to be more formidable than ever.
