OYA (Organisation of Young Africans)


Based in London, Organisation of Young Africans (OYA) has provided holistic support to young people and their families of African and African-Caribbean heritage since 2000. They offer a range of services from academic training in core subjects to traineeships for over 16s as well as support with motivation and confidence. 200 young people aged between 9 and 19 spend up to 200 hours each per annum benefitting from these activities. OYA is using The Foreā€™s grant to employ a Programme Manager who will implement more efficient, less labour intensive and sustainable systems so the charity can meet the ever-increasing demand for its services.
