Would You Like to Become a Part Of the YCW?

YCW is open to young people who have left school up to the age of 30 who want to make a difference to their communities, places of work and in their own lives. YCW is a place to put your beliefs into action with other like-minded young people. There are different ways to get involved and everyone benefits from meeting new people, attending local, national and international events and taking part in action to make a difference.

Benefits of Becoming a Member

YCW is an organized international movement of young people, run by young for young people. Becoming an official member of the YCW entitles you to participate in decision-making processes that ensure YCW remains a youth-led organization.


Membership also enables participants to represent local YCW branches and the national body at local and international events.

Become a Mentor

YCW’s focus is on developing the leadership potential of young people through mentoring a process of action and reflection known as see-judge-act. YCW depends on suitably experienced and values-driven adults (35+) to accompany and support YCW leaders, teams, and groups. Send in your Expression of Interest to receive free training to become a youth mentor.
