African Youth Amílcar Cabral (Portuguese: Juventude Africana Amílcar Cabral) is the youth wing of PAIGC in Guinea-Bissau. JAAC was founded on September 12, 1974 in Boé.

After the separation of PAICV from PAIGC, the Cape Verdean section of JAAC became a separate organization, also called JAAC. Today that organization has been renamed Youth of PAICV (Juventude do PAICV).

JAAC is a member of World Federation of Democratic Youth, although it is no longer active in that organization. It used to be a member of the International Union of Students, but the membership is currently frozen. JAAC has obtained observer status in the International Union of Socialist Youth.
