The National Youth Council (NYC) is an organisation set up by the Singapore Government as the national co-ordinating body for youth affairs in Singapore. Set up on 1 November 1989, NYC is also Singapore’s focal point for international youth affairs.

From 1 January 2015, NYC was restructured into an autonomous agency as the national body coordinating youth development under the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY).[citation needed]

To augment NYC’s role as a national youth developer, Outward Bound Singapore, which offers adventure-based experiential learning, and newly formed Youth Corps Singapore are now[when?] part of the strengthened NYC, to drive youth development and broaden outreach to young Singaporeans and youth sector organisations.[citation needed]

Lawrence Wong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth is the Chairman of the 13th Council.[citation needed] The Council comprises members from various government ministries, youth organisations, academic institutions, voluntary welfare organisations, media and private sector organisations.[citation needed]

David Chua is the CEO.[1][2][3]
