72 pages National Youth Councils report was designed and printed in April 2006. This project was carried out by TakingITGlobal and supported by The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. It tells the story of the presence (or, in some cases, absence of ), history, evolution, mandate, and purpose of a group of National Youth Councils (NYCs). National Youth Councils exist in many forms and in many countries around the world, serving as coordinators of youth organizations on the national level, contacts with similar organizations in other countries, and the nexus of youth-government relations.
