After the establishment of the Emirates Youth Council (EYC), seven local councils in each emirate were established.
LYCs serve as an outreach and mobilization team working to raise awareness and encourage participation in surveys, studies, programs, and youth initiatives.
Above all, members of the LYCs serve as role models in engaging, listening to, and inspiring peers across the nation.
Secondary youth councils are affiliated to the main local youth councils. They assist the main councils in attaining their goals and implement their plans to ensure that young people in remote areas are not left out.
Each local and secondary council includes seven members, including the chairman of the council.
