Our Mission

Aya, Inc. is a mentoring organization that evolves the concepts of leadership, professionalism, and entrepreneurship for young women of color in Washington DC. Our dual mentorship program connects young professionals to undergraduate students at Howard University and those same undergraduate Howard University students to high school students in the economically crippled communities of Southeast Washington DC. We offer a series of workshops that enhance the leadership, entrepreneurship, and professional development skills of both the high school and undergraduate students. 

Through mentorship and weekly workshops, Aya Inc. empowers young women to boldly pursue their professional endeavors, expands their network and prepares them for leadership.
