The African Youth Brigade (abbreviated AYB) was a youth organization in Ghana. It was active in the 1980s.[1][2] The AYB emerged from a split from the African Youth Command. The membership of AYB was mainly based amongst secondary school students in the Volta, Brong Ahafo and Greater Accra regions.[2] AYB was one of the more moderate groupings supporting the PNDC.[3]

Kwabla Davour was the national secretary of the organization and Dr. M.M. Owusu-Ansah is patron.[2]
