Our Story

Action Leadership for Youth and Community Development Organisation. (ALYCDO)

Action Leadership for Youth and Community Development Organisation is a youth focused non-profit organization which was founded and is based in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The organization pursues to teach Leadership Education as the fulcrum that supports Personal Development and Community Development.The organization targets youth between the ages of 12-18 years focusing more on Grades eight to twelve and the youth outside the formal school system as they are rightfully positioned age wise going forward to benefit from conscious personal development and community service.

ALYDCO seeks to be the platform for engaging the youth in Leadership Education, Academic Education, and Community Service Education. All this is geared towards grooming an ACTIVE youth citizenship hence the emphasis on Active Leadership. Lack of awareness and the importance of conscious personal development and community engagement are a huge set back in our local communities and this contributes to a number of social ills such as risky behavior, a laissez-faire  approach to life and the migration we see from our local communities to the affluent ones once the door of success opens up.

Ultimately, with proper understanding, education, and guidance every young person can begin to use the leadership gifts that he/she or possesses for his/her personal growth and can be easily coerced to engage in community issues as positively active members. In order to achieve the above ALYCDO has the following vision, purpose and mission
