Policy and Advocacy
NYEC's policy framework (adopted on June 13, 2005) promotes a national framework that includes actions for government at all levels to support the healthy development of our nation's youth. The National Youth Employment Coalition (NYEC) is calling for new policies at the local, state, and federal levels that facilitate quality programs.
NYEC envisions a nation in which every young person is assured the full range of educational, developmental, vocational, economic, social opportunities, supports, and services needed to become a productive and self sufficient worker, taxpayer, parent, and citizen.
