Promoting Positive Youth Development
Youth Leadership Programs
Our Cultural Exchange Program and Student Board Program offer opportunities for youths to work along with us in promoting global citizenship while developing essential leadership skills. Youths learn how to effectively lead; how to influence the opinions of others while serving as role models; how to examine pertinent societal issues in order to inspire positive change. ​ 
Creative Expression Program
The AYI Performing Arts Program uses performing arts as a vehicle to drive personal development. Through dramatic performances, we bring attention to personal responsibility and awareness to societal issues including AIDS/HIV, teen pregnancy, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and the roll of education in achieving a brighter future.
