Serving Arizona since 2014, Aspiring Youth Academy is focused on ending the cycle of poverty by empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs. AYA believes in the power of hands-on education, mentorship, financial education, and capital investment that will support the untapped dreams of our aspiring youth.

Each year we serve thousands of children throughout Maricopa County in hopes of breaking the cycle of poverty. 86 percent of the children we serve qualify as Title 1 students and their families fall at or below the poverty line.

AYA offers a robust series of educational and growth experiences to match every student’s level of interest and ability. Our curriculum has been carefully curated through partnerships with organizations with great expertise in for-profit entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, leadership, and personal growth. We offer our programs in schools, libraries, and in collaboration with youth organizations.
