Mission and Vision Statements
The National Association of Youth Diversity Committees (NAYDC), a project of the National Diversity Council, strives to involve students in the process of creating a more respectful world. The NAYDC believes that young people have the best opportunities and potential to change the climate of their communities. The future is in the hands of young people, and only with the active participation and enthusiasm of students throughout the country, can America become a safe, accepting, and considerate environment.
The National Association of Youth Diversity Committees (NAYDC) engages interested high school students in the formation and maintenance of Youth Diversity Councils (YDC's), which will give young people throughout America a broader perspective of different races, ethnicities, sexualities, interests, disabilities, and backgrounds. The NAYDC will support a nation-wide program that brings the value of diversity to high schools through the YDC’s. The NAYDC will develop the programs of YDC’s throughout the nation so that they can reach the student in their schools.
