For 36 years the National Youth Employment Coalition (NYEC) has been a member-driven, national leader in the areas of policy and practice for youth development and employment.


NYEC member benefits include:

    • Convenings, updates, and publications on policy, practice, and capacity building.
    • Information and resources from across the fields of youth development, workforce development, and education, including our feature-rich newsletter YouthNotes.
    • Important updates about funding availability to support youth employment.
    • Policy analyses that link the latest developments with your work.
    • Valuable networking and peer-sharing opportunities with other youth-serving organizations, researchers, and funder partners.
    • Opportunities to influence policymakers and craft legislation and policies at the federal and state levels through NYEC's advocacy efforts.
    • Group purchasing for cell phones, technology, office supplies, and rental cars.

The passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), President Obama's My Brother's Keeper and Summer Opportunity initiatives, and an increasing national interest in opportunity youth mean that NYEC will be a place where to have a significant impact as we leverage our unique expertise in these areas.
