The U.S. Embassy Youth Council is a group of young Nepalese under the age of 30 from all regions of Nepal and representing various backgrounds, castes, religions, professions, genders and political affiliations. The council was created by the Embassy of the United States of America to Nepal.
The council was established to achieve two objectives:
1) To inform the U.S. Embassy about the challenges young Nepalese face and what can be done to address them, and
2) To encourage participation by council members in their communities and the larger civil society.
Youth councils are being created in U.S. embassies all over the world as a way to for the U.S. government to communicate directly with youth about the challenges they face. USYAC aim to provide young people with a place where they can safely express their views, engage in open, constructive dialogue and explore opportunities to make positive changes in their communities.
Deadline for Application is January 20, 2013, 17:00 NST.
