CYEC is a membership organisation. Membership is open to organisations, statutory and voluntary youth and education bodies in the UK, and individuals who have an interest in Commonwealth youth exchange.

There are currently over 222 member organisations, 134 local authorities and 88 voluntary bodies. We are an inclusive and democratic organisation and this is reflected in the diversity and range of member bodies.

Member 'ownership' is critical to the governance and development of CYEC. Members participate and engage in CYEC's affairs by:

  • Participating in CYEC working groups, committees and Board of Trustees
  • Taking part in special CYEC initiatives and pilot projects
  • Receiving new resources and publications

Benefits of membership include:

  • Information and advice about grant aid for two-way Commonwealth youth exchanges for young people
  • Opportunities for staff and young people to participate in special projects, training courses and national initiatives
  • Assistance in design and delivery of international in-service training courses at cost to CYEC
  • Copies of new publications, resources and curriculum materials with membership discounts on purchases
  • Staff development opportunities in managing and contributing to a national voluntary youth organisation

Membership subscription is on a scale from £50 - £500 dependent on size of organisation. If your organisation is interested in becoming a CYEC member please contact us and request a member pack.
