The African Caribbean Pacific Diaspora Youth Support Services (ACP DYSS) is a Not-for-Profit association of ACP Grassroot and Diaspora youth from the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) group of countries. Its initiative and core objective is to promote cultural relativism in the ACP countries among young people through re-education and working together with ACP youth, youth organisations and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) from ACP member countries; ensuring these young people advance in life and to promote their wellbeing.
The vision of ACP DYSS is to be the conduit and development catalyst of ACP Grassroot and Diaspora youth across the globe. ACP DYSS is intent on building an ACP Diaspora youth community who are professional experts, effectively working together with ACP Grassroot youth, youth organisations, CSOs and other organisations from ACP member countries towards achieving sustainable development.
Our mission is to engage the ACP Grassroot and Diaspora youth across the globe in the development of ACP countries through re-education and working together, employing face-to-face and virtual presentations, helping these youth to participate and contribute towards their advancement in life. Our aim is to create an environment of networking and collaboration among Grassroot and Diaspora youth of ACP regions. This in-turn would empower and enable the youth to contribute positively to their respective communities. In its development strategy, ACP DYSS aligns itself with the development policy of the target region.
To help young people in particular, but not exclusively from ethnic minority backgrounds in the United Kingdom and the world advance in life by developing their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals. To relieve poverty through offering various training programs, seminars, advice and mentorship.
In a nutshell, the objectives of ACP DYSS focus on three pillars namely: Re-Education, Working Together and Collective Sustainable Development / Self-Realization, which would be carried out sequentially.
