Building the capacities of African Youth & reviving PanAfricanism
Mission of the organization
The African Youth Bureau is a unit created within the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports in February 2014 to develop African relations through youth, by establishing partnerships and implementing programs for the continent with national institutions concerned with youth and the African Union, to consolidate African values established by the founding fathers of the Organization of African Unity in 1963. These are the values endorsed by the Africa Agenda 2063.
The African Youth Bureau was accredited as the point of contact, in July 2014, by the AU Commission for Human Resources, Science and Technology.
The Bureau seeks to empower young Africans through the development of their economic and cultural capacities through the implementation of knowledge exchange programs and capacity building in order for them to become a dynamic and influential force on the world stage, to bring us a step closer towards the Africa that we want; based on Egypt's 2030 vision at the national level, the Agenda of Africa 2063 at the continental level and the SDGs 2030 at the global level.
