About Us

The National Youth Employment Coalition improves the lives of the more than 4 million young people who are out of school and out of work. We do this by improving the effectiveness of the organizations, and the systems, that serve these "opportunity youth" and others impacted by inequity. We collect, study, and support the implementation of best practices, all with a strong justice and equity focus.

NYEC builds the capacity of youth-serving organizations and advocates for opportunity youth. NYEC conducts four kinds of activities to advance this mission:

  1. NYEC keeps the field up to date on recent innovations in practice and the latest research on service models.
  2. NYEC builds its members' capacity on two levels: professional development for youth workers and organizational development for agencies.
  3. NYEC serves as a unique line of communication between practitioners and policy makers. NYEC regularly solicits the views of members on how policy affects their service to youth, conducts original analyses, and works with partners to advance policy solutions that move the youth-development field forward.
  4. As an aggregator and curator of proven, emerging, and promising practices, NYEC promotes models supported by members and the research base.
