Areas of Work

Caribbean Regional Youth Council works in the following areas:

CARICOM Institutions

The Establishment of a Caribbean Regional Youth Council came out of decisions made at three Caribbean Youth Leaders' Summits between the years 2011 and 2013, which recognized the need for a unified regional body to advocate for and advance the development agenda for youth.

It was voiced by all of the region's youth leaders present, that there is a need to establish and sustain functional, democratic National Youth Councils in every Caribbean country to facilitate the development of youth by serving as an essential engine not only for advancing the cause of youth but as a catalyst towards democracy, social transformation and good governance. A regional  youth council was recognized as the vehicle through which these could be achieved.

Strategically, the CRYC is seeking to establish itself as a strategic youth governance and advocacy network/movement working towards regional representation, integration and cooperation as a platform for youth development.

 

Vision

A unified network and voice of empowered Caribbean Youth, with equal access to opportunities - working together to lead the regional development agenda

Mission

The Caribbean Regional Youth Council is a strategic youth governance and advocacy movement with one voice, working towards regional representation, integration and cooperation as a platform for youth development.
