Message from our Founding Team

Established in 2017, AYF has been dedicated to empowering young people by unlocking their leadership potential, promoting a more inclusive society for all individuals, and creating a positive impact for a better future.

The Asia Pacific region has progressed rapidly over the past years, attaining economic prosperity and technological advancement. Meanwhile, there remains a yawning wealth gap between the haves and have-nots. The economic disparity has limited the opportunities that could be accessed by the poorer end of the spectrum.

Therefore, we envision a sustainable future built by concerted youth efforts. We connect, collaborate, and co-create with our stakeholders to actualize our vision. We are committed to fostering knowledge transfer and building partnerships to furnish the support needed to harness the full potential of young people, elevate their leadership strengths, and ultimately narrow the opportunity gaps with collective efforts.
