The Way Forward For the CNYC
By Desmond NJI Mezam Divisional Delegate to the North West Regional Assembly of the CNYC
The Cameroon National Youth Council (CNYC) created in 2009 embodies assorted organisation that deal with youth issues. As an apolitical organisation; created due to the call for the active participation of youth in growth and development of their nations, the CYNC has striven all these years to ensure youth participation but not without some lapses.
YOP believes that volunteerism is a major force in development. If you are a young person interested in any of our program areas.
