About Chapters

The International Youth Council has recognized national leadership in the form of Chapters. These Chapters serve as coordinating bodies for the countries in which they are formed.

 

The chapter aims to inform, inspire, and support youth leadership while pursuing sustainable development practices as stated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is achieved through developing cross-cultural and inter-generational partnerships through strategic initiatives. All chapters will work under the guidelines of the IYC Headquarters in line with the IYC’s mission and vision.

 

Please find more details about IYC chapters at the IYC Chapter Guidelines
