Help us celebrate!
Our students are doing it!
AYA (ah-yah) is an Adinkra Symbol. It is a symbol of the fern. For the Akan of Ghana, it stands for independence, resourcefulness, endurance and defiance in the face of difficulty. AYA guides our educational methodology and is embedded in all our educational goals and objectives.

AYA Educational Institute, directed by Afiya Madzimoyo, M.S.W., and Baba Wekesa Madzimoyo provides quality educational alternatives and resources for youth and adults of African descent.

For 12 years, AYA's programs have immersed students, parents and other adults in an African-centered educational and social environment that is rich in our past and culture.

The assessments, instruction and activities are designed to prepare them to excel academically and socially. These tools enable them to succeed in their current and future responsibilities to themselves, their families, our community, our people and the world (in that order).

Our Mission:

It was in the summer of 1998 that AYA got started.
I remember it well. We were passing out flyers all over the Atlanta metro area. Wow, have we grown since then. Today we have youth and adult students all over the US, Bermuda and Trinadad too. We've extended our collaboration with other organizations and learned better how to serve our people. Over these years we've been unwavering in our mission.

Through its various programs and publications, AYA's mission is to provide educational services for children, youth and adults that facilitate Africans and Africans in the Diaspora developing
A HIGH motivation to achieve academically and socially based on a clear African identity and commitment to serve the African community first.

  • A track record of demonstrable academic and social excellence
  • A HIGH degree of self love, cultural love, people-hood consciousness and active extension for African economic and political strength
  • A ZERO degree of dependency on those that have and continue to oppress us
