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.
