The Pacific Youth Council is a non governmental regional organization that empowers young people to become active citizens and leaders.
The Pacific Youth Council (PYC) was registered as a regional non-governmental youth organisation in 1996. The formation of the PYC was the result of a call by National Youth Councils to have a regional body coordinating the ‘voice’ of all councils and their members, the young people.
