The AYE Awards (short AYEA) is intended to show young people with an African migration background the importance of education as an important key factor for success and to inspire them to find their way. Discussions and lectures on the topics of acquiring manual skills, the choice of various vocational trainings or whether a university career might be the right path for the young adults are the focus here. In addition, AYEA offers a platform for exchange and thus enables young adults of African origin to network.

AYEA is our collective responsibility that we must build and shape for future generations.

The AYEA event was established in 2011 and has been organized by the non-profit organization TopAfric e.V. since then.
