Youth Motivation Task Force

For more than 49 years, the Youth Motivation Task Force (YMTF) Outreach Program at AAMU has provided professionals from various backgrounds – many of whom are AAMU alumni – an opportunity to interact with students within the classroom and to introduce them to careers within the private and public sectors. Teams of two to four professionals visit classrooms across campus, where they share career advice, trials, words of wisdom and encouragement. Through their personal accomplishments, YMTF consultants show, first-hand, the personal and professional rewards that can be reaped from earning a college degree.



    • Introduce AAMU students to the private and public sector job market
    • Discuss possible solutions to problems students might encounter in the workplace
    • Inform students of skills they will need to succeed in the workplace
    • Share experiences on working in the job market
    • Serve as positive role models and mentors
    • Underscore the importance of being fully engaged with Career Development Services (CDS)

    • Create possible employment opportunities (internship, co-op, career) for students
    • Develop mentorship opportunities
    • Increase awareness of CDS and its services to faculty and students
