AYA which means "to stand and strive through adversity" is a youth led program, which seeks to mentor young ladies ages 14-17. We provide tutoring, mentoring, enrichment activities and lots of fun to keep the young ladies motivated and active.
Our goal is to provide them with long lasting friendships, provide insight into everyday issues and direct them to resources which can benefit them all from an African-centered perspective.
AYA is a program that meets twice a week. We offer workshops on self-esteem, etiquette, learning how to write a resume helping with the college application/admission process and time management skills all free of charge! We have great young women from Morgan State University who are dedicated volunteers who want to help you and your precious little girls on their way to becoming a young ladies.
