The YCW Organises, Educates and Empowers young people to be a positive change within their own lives and the community.


AYCW Vision Statement

The YCW works to create a society, which actively seeks to support and respect the God-given dignity of each person.
We will consciously uphold basic human rights, especially the right to meaningful and just work.
We will educate for global awareness and solidarity.
Through taking action and reviewing in our communities, young people will discover the deepest meaning and mission of their lives.


AYCW National Campaign

The AYCW aims to Represent, Educate, and Serve all young workers. Worth Working For: Security and Dignity in Life, is a campaign that reflects the reality of young workers as they struggle to feel secure in their life when it comes to finances, secure work, and a stable home life. Read more
