Since 2009, African Youth & Community Organization (AYCO) has served immigrants and refugees in the Portland Metro area. We foster education, empowerment, independence, and more.
AYCO’s mission is “...to forget the past, engage the present and hope for the future.” We focus on empowering young members of the African immigrant and refugee community to become tomorrow’s leaders. Our vision is strength and integration, and problem-solving to succeed for the future.
AYCO Center is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9-5 pm. The center is a one-stop-shop, offering a place for new refugees and immigrants to access various services with the main service providers all in one place. Services meet the unique cultural and linguistic needs of this community, including ethnic and gender support, professional social services, and community-based services.
