The YAFG Skills Academy excites, educates, and equips students from low income communities by delivering high quality STEM education programs that empower students to achieve economic mobility and better life chances.

The YAFG Leaders Network empowers the next generation of Ghanaian leaders and equips them with diverse perspectives and skills necessary to drive change. We introduce young leaders to year-round service projects, career development programs, and networking opportunities with local organizations.
