Communist Youth Movement (in Dutch: Communistische Jongeren Beweging) is a political youth organisation in the Netherlands. The CJB was founded on 21 September 2003, as an independent, though politically allied, continuation of the youth of the New Communist Party of the Netherlands, NCPN Jongeren (NCPN Youth). It is the official youth organisation of the NCPN, and it publishes Voorwaarts! (Forward!), an online magazine.

Its membership count remains unpublished, but the growth of the CJB, due to their activity, has shown to be a factor of the revitalisation of their mother party. Its members are present at most demonstrations and massorganisations that the NCPN and other European communist youth groups participate in, as well as active in Cuban solidarity campaigns.
