The 2012 PDC World Youth Championship was the second edition of the PDC World Youth Championship, a tournament organised by the Professional Darts Corporation for darts players aged between 14 and 21.

The knock-out stages from the last 64 to the semi-finals were played in Crawley on 4 November 2011 and weren't broadcast live on TV.[1] The final took place on 17 May 2012, before the final of the 2012 Premier League Darts, which was shown live on Sky Sports. The two finalists became PDC Pro Tour card holders for 2012 and 2013, and also received invitations to the 2011 Grand Slam of Darts.

Arron Monk was the defending champion, but he lost to Matthew Dicken in the first round. Michael van Gerwen, who lost the 2010 final, and James Hubbard contested the final at The O2 Arena, London.[2] Hubbard won in the final 6–3.[3]
