young Adult & Youth Clubs



Youth Clubs (5-17)

The goal of the NC Federation of Colored Women's Clubs is to mentor young women ( and young boys men) destined for leadership at all levels. This is done through two ways: University and College Campus Service Clubs organized by young women interested in supporting the ideals, goals and mission of the Federation and young adults between the ages of 5 and 35 accepted into membership of NACWC standard federated clubs.

Youth Conference 2024

115th YAYC Convention

Under the umbrella of the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs (NACWC) and their standard federated clubs, the National Association of Girls clubs was organized in 1930 by Sallie Stewart and National Association of Boys organized in 1963 by Otelia Champion. In 1996 the two clubs combined to form the National Association of Youth Clubs (NAYC) for girls and boys ages five (5) to seventeen (17). Their purpose was to educate youth and familiarize them with the responsibilities of service, ideals of self-empowerment and the mission agenda of the NACWC that is dedicated to uplifting communities of color and promoting racial harmony among all people; to preserve the health and beauty of the body to inspire love for the home and all mankind; to provide training and preparation for youth to take their place in society.
