The National Youth Employment Coalition (NYEC) improves the effectiveness of organizations that seek to help youth become productive citizens.
NYEC envisions a nation in which every young person is assured the full range of educational, developmental, vocational, economic and social opportunities, supports, and services s/he may need to become a productive and self-sufficient worker, taxpayer, parent, and citizen.
Working at the intersection of youth development, education and workforce development policy and practice, NYEC offers a range of initiatives, services and activities that fall into one of four core areas:
- Track, craft, and influence policy
- Set and promote quality standards
- Provide and support professional development
- Build and increase the capacity of organizations and programs
