Formerly known as Ambassador’s Youth Advisory Council, United States Youth Council is a council of 54 young Nepalese from diverse background from all regions of Nepal and representing various backgrounds, castes, religions, and professions. The council was created by the Embassy of the United States of America to Nepal.
The Ambassador’s Youth Advisory Council was initiated by former US Ambassador to Nepal, H.E. Scott H. DeLisi in 2011.
The council was established with two objectives:
1) To inform the Embassy about the challenges young Nepalese face and what can be done to address them, and
2) To encourage participation by Council members in their communities and the larger civil society.
The council members will have a tenure of 1 year.
