Agape Youth Movement (AYM), a youth-led non-profit organisation based in Gauteng, South Africa, was established in 2009. AYM’s aim is to support and strengthen the leadership agency and participation of high school learners. They achieve this by implementing programs in all 9 provinces, focusing on various areas such as school governance, advocacy on sexual reproductive health and rights, building safer schools, environmental sustainability, and entrepreneurship.

AYM works closely with government partners including the Department of Basic Education (DBE), South African Police Service (SAPS), Department of women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities, and the department of Government Communications and Information Systems (GCIS). Their target groups include learner leaders, educators, and government officials who form a support system for the learner leaders.
