The International Youth Council (IYC) is a civil society organization founded at the Youth Assembly at the United Nations in 2007.
The IYC is dedicated to giving young people across the world both collective voice and a mechanism to support global sustainable development.
The mission of the IYC is to provide educational resources, leadership opportunities, and a global network to the next generation of world leaders. The IYC assists young leaders in developing entrepreneurial projects and campaigns to support sustainable development projects on a local, regional, and international level.
The IYC also serves as the official network of the Annual Youth Assembly at the United Nations.
The vision of the International Youth Council is to build a global forum and platform on which all young people can develop a unified voice and take collective action toward social, economic, and environmental progress.
