Help Support our Intiatives
NYEC is a founding member of the Reconnecting Youth Campaign, with the mission of increasing federal appropriations to reconnect one million youth per year to employment, education, and opportunity. Your donation helps support our work in connecting communities and youth at the grassroots level to federal policymakers and staffers.
Partnership with Y-TAC
Throughout 2019, NYEC updated the YSP/KSA training modules, which are being delivered in states around the country. NYEC is a partner in the Youth Technical Assistance Center (Y-TAC), which is run by the Institute of Educational Leadership through a grant from the Rehabilitation Service Administration. This work will continue in 2020.
Between June 22-25th 2020, for a third year NYEC along with several national partners hosted the All Youth Connecting: Reengagement, Careers, and Community. The conference featured several tracks including a newly added "The COVID-19 Economy" and heavily emphasized discussion and peer learning with stakeholders throughout the country. Between December 7-10th 2020 NYEC hosted the Annual Forum which brought together 400+ attendees over the country for learning, healing, strategy and mobilizing into 2021.
At the core of NYEC is our growing membership. Your donation helps us bring new programming and resources to our members who collectively serve thousand of youth across the country. Consider also joining NYEC as a member by learning more here.

Youth Leadership Initiative
NYEC began 2020 by kicking off its Youth Leadership Initiative which is an ambitious move to involve young adults in all aspects of the organization’s decision-making. Young adults, current and former participants in NYEC member programs, will change how NYEC makes decisions, complement the organization’s advocacy and field-building efforts, and influence how NYEC member organizations engage young adults in decision-making roles.
