Mission: Transformation through yoga: marginalized youth employment, wellbeing industry growth led by marginalized youth, and community leadership.

AYP has successfully trained marginalized youth to increase their incomes and serve marginalized communities through yoga since 2007. AYP also fosters leadership, service, and the Africa wellbeing industry. AYP piloted an academy transformation in 2016 to expand how many marginalized youth it could reach; with around 100 yoga teachers currently enrolled, it has trained over 200. AYP uses a “learn and earn” model to train marginalized youth.
