Welcome to Adventist Youth Network (A.Y. Net)
These Terms govern your use of Adventist Youth Network and the products, features, apps, services, technologies, and software we offer except where we expressly state that separate terms (and not these) apply. Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services. The Services are provided by Adventist Youth Network (A.Y. Net), located at 26 Osu Avenue, Osu, Accra, Republic of Ghana.
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.
Our mission is to give people (especially Adventist youth) the power to build a holy Spirit filled internet community and make internet a safe place for Seventh-Day Adventist Youth (especially the young ones) to surf. We also aim at bringing to world together under one umbrella. To help advance this mission, we provide the Products and services described as follows:
Provide Holistic Experience
Your experience on A.Y. Net can be compared to none; from the online television and radio, magazine, posts, articles, events and other content you see in the social media platform to the Pages you follow and other features you might use, such as Market and search. We use the data you provide - for example, about the connections you make, the choices and settings you select, and what you share and do on and off our Products - to personalize your experience.

We solicit our content from Adventist Youth Ministries from across the globe. We help you find and connect with people, groups, events, and others that matter to you across the Network.
