Kosovar Youth Council (KYC) is a youth non-governmental organization (NGO) established to activate young Kosovars to respond to their problems brought on by massive expulsion from their homes to Albania in 1999. We act to build a civil society through youth participation, by creating and supporting youth NGOs and coordinating their leadership.
We represent youth voices; promote self-organized education, development and entertainment for youth; and actively involve youth in the creation and development of meaningful youth policies.
Our vision is to “make a better place for a better life.” The KYC has a multi-ethnic membership, mainly adolescents, with some others in their twenties. We are one of Kosova’s newest youth NGOs registered with UNMIK. We are among a few organizations serving as an advocacy group on behalf of young Kosovars. Members of the Kosovar Youth Council are working in several cities in Kosova with a main office in Prishtina.
Our organization underwent an in-depth organizational development process in 2000, and it is governed by a set of by-laws. We elect a President, Executive Director, Financial Manager, Project Managers and Project Coordinators. We currently have more than 60 very active members.
