The National Youth Chamber of Commerce (NYCC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of youth through the installation of human capital development programming at the community level. Our mission is to provide a positive environment where young men and women are empowered to invest in themselves, their futures and their communities. The YCC has two distinct programs, differentiated by age group. A community based Youth Chamber of Commerce (YCC) chapter will either have members age 10 to 17 or 18-24.
Training for YCC members ages 10 to 17 includes:
- Product Management
- Import/export Strategies
- Supply Chain Management
- Management Succession
Programming for YCC members ages 18 to 24:
- Re-integrates disconnected youth with their families
- Re-establishes and promotes educational advancement
- Creates workforce development opportunities
- Fosters community revitalization through small business incubation and philanthropy.
The Youth Chamber of Commerce (YCC) is a program that provides an environment for students to learn business protocol, business etiquette, and financial & budgetary concepts through specific business projects and technology training. Youth members are given training on business subjects including product management, import/export strategies, supply chain management, leadership, management succession and philanthropy using licensed materials and technology.
The Youth Chamber of Commerce is an exciting opportunity for members to make an immediate impact in member communities by practicing their leadership skills beginning with their power to nominate, vote and elect peers as their representatives to guide their chapter of the Youth Chamber of Commerce.
The program model was designed to meet needs of several communities that want to support youth development and job creation using sophisticated retention strategies.
