The Future for AYCO
We envision a future where a strong cultural identity within immigrant’s communities of the Pan Africa Diaspora is supported by inclusive educational and economic opportunities.
African Youth Community Organization (AYCO) has set a stretch goal for the Dream Center capital campaign. Our facility team has committed not to exceed $5.5 million to complete purchasing the Dream Center.
More than $1,500,000 has been committed!
- An additional $2.5 million is pending from Federal funding and City of Portland Budget
- To be raised: $1.5 million to purchase the AYCO Dream Center
Special thanks to Senator Dembrow, Senator Jama and Representative Pham for their 1.3M dollars.
The AYCO Dream Center will be a hub for immigrants and refugees of the Pan-African Diaspora and communities of color to feel at home. It will Spur economic development without displacement, and provide protective factors against systemic inequities.
