The Commonwealth Youth Programme (CYP) is an international development agency that is dedicated to empowering young people (aged 15-29) in its member countries. Young people shape every aspect of our work. The issues that we target and the programmes that we develop are all based on their views, experiences and urgent needs.
Young people throughout the Commonwealth have an enormous contribution to make in their countries. CYP works with young people to create the opportunity for them to become active citizens who understand that they have rights as well as responsibilities. This enables them to fully participate in development projects that create opportunities for themselves and their communities.
