The aims and objective which is the goals of Black Youth United Nigeria are as follow:
1. Making youth in Nigeria and blacks in diaspora to be aware of their culture and not to be dominated by the western culture and we plan to do that by organizing Africa oriented theatre dramas and productions which we had only don e few yet, we are working on a new one but still not sure if the Dance troupe will perform yet, still negotiating.
2. To learn more about the history of blacks in diaspora; especailly what they experianced in diffrent part of the world wher ethey found themselves through servitude or indentured labour, to know the kind of adaptation they went thruough to became what they were today an dto better ther elots and concern about Africa as a continent and oe major step we have taken toward this is by taking children of primary school to some slave centers in Lagos, the badagry slave trade centre were million sof our brother, fathers were taken away, we still plan to hav esom emore trips and contributions and we are planing to bring in history lecturers who focus on the Afro-America history fro universities seminars very soon.
3. Another area we would love the comunity and school to benefit from the is the BYU programms is to assist student, (specail and screened) who are not too fortunate in terms of finance and scholarhip to help them in there schools and works.
