The National Youth Council of Somalia (NYCS) considers that it is necessary to find systematic solutions to support young people in different spheres of social life. It is the obligation of society to respect young people and help them in demonstrating and achieving their possibilities, with both personal and social benefit. The NYCS encourages all children and young people develop the knowledge and skills to fully participate as active citizens in an inclusive society.

We also want to see Somalia to be where young people are respected and able to influence and inform decisions that affect their lives or on which they have strong opinions. We aim to help youth people to participate in decisions that affect them; have a voice and campaign on issues they believe in, inspire them to have a positive impact, and gain recognition for their positive contribution to communities, society and the world.
