The U.S. Embassy Youth Council Nepal (USYC) was created in 2011 to interact directly with Nepali youth. The Youth Council has two primary objectives:
To encourage participation by USYC members in their democracy, through engagement in their communities and civil society.
To inform the Embassy about the challenges young Nepalese face and what can be done to address them.
The incumbent USYC consists of 53 Nepalese from all regions of Nepal that represent various backgrounds, castes, religions, and professions. The U.S. Embassy constantly engages with the Youth Council through regularly offered discussion programs, training, outings and other events.
