About Organisation

OYA’s main project, the Saturday supplementary school provides educational support for over 100 students of African and African-Caribbean heritage aged 10-16 in core National Curriculum subjects: English, Maths and Science. OYA aims to encourage the young people to have a strong sense of their cultural identity, a strong sense of purpose in their own individual lives and to nurture their community spirit.

OYA was set up in 2000, as a charity, by a group of young African professionals. Its aim is to nurture a spirit of initiative and integrity in African communities through the development of self-help projects in a variety of fields including education, culture, economics and medicine.

In 2014, OYA ran a pilot project, in partnership with Park High school providing after-school support for 25-30 students of African and African-Caribbean heritage aged 11-16 in core National Curriculum subjects. In 2016, OYA relocated their Saturday school from Colindale to the Park High premises and we aim to bring other schools on board to continue working towards enhancing the life chances of the target group.
