AYLA has been established in seven-member states, garnering a dynamic network of young trailblazers, representing different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. It provides the youth a profound platform to experience and give in-depth learning on ASEAN to celebrate and to welcome the exciting ASEAN One Community by being involved in several advocacies and projects, ranging from humanitarian efforts to cultural exchanges and leadership camps, in its commitment for youth development.
