What is the byc
What is the BYC?

  • The British Youth Council (BYC) is led by young people for young people, aged 26 and under, across the UK.  This year BYC is celebrating 60 years of empowering young people to have a say and be heard. 2008 is shaping up to be a great year of getting active and campaigning, so now is the time to get involved! 


The history of byc
The History of BYC

The British Youth Council (BYC) is celebrating 60

years of empowering young people in the UK to

have voice this year. That's right 1948 - 2008, that's a lot of young people, youth issues, music, fashions, governments and politics. The BYC’s path to become the National Youth Council of the UK was a rocky one!!


Byc s vision and mission
BYC’s Vision andMission

  • All young people across the UK will have a say and be heard.

  • The British Youth Council (BYC) is led by young people, for young people, aged 26 and under, across the UK.  We connect with our community of member organisations and network of Local Youth Councils, to empower all of us, wherever we’re from, to have a say and be heard.  Our fresh take on training and volunteering and our lively campaigns – both local and global – inspire young people to have a positive impact and make their voices count.


What the byc stands for
What the BYC stands for ?

  • BYC is an organisation of young people for young people across the UK. We empower other young people to get involved in the things that are important to us and to have a say in decisions that affect our lives.  We believe that it doesn't matter who we are or where we come from, our voices count.


What the does the byc do
What the does the BYC do?

  • We run training workshops, create volunteering opportunities and build inspiring campaigns which give everyone aged 26 and under a chance to make a positive contribution to society both in the UK and other countries.

  • We also link up with our Member Organisations and network of Local Youth Councils across the UK to share ideas, skills and information so that all young people can play a role in decisions about the things that matter.


What does this mean for you
What does this mean for you ?

  • Well, if you're aged 26 or under, we want you to have the chance to have your say and be heard. One way that you can make an impact is through campaigning, and by getting involved in our campaigns you can directly influence MPs and policy makers.  You can tell us what you think we should be campaigning for through our Youth Manifesto.

  • Another way that young people can get involved and make a real difference is through volunteering.  Why not check out the different ways you can volunteer with BYC or the organisations we work with?

Current National Minimum Wage Rates

  • 16-17Years £3.40 per hr

  • The BYC believes in equality between adults and young people.

  • Article 32 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child requires that governments should "recognise the right of the child to be protected from economic exploitation.”


What does it mean for cycle
What does it mean for CYCLE?

  • Perhaps you are already part of a national youth organisation such as the Scouts or the NUS, or a Local Youth Council, or belong to the youth segment of a wider organisation such as a trade union.  We encourage these organisations to become our members so that together we can make the views of young people heard across the UK.  Through these organisations we also provide training so that young people can work together more effectively and get our point across to the people that make decisions.
