The UNESCO Chairs Network on Children, Youth and Community facilitates the establishment of key priority areas related to UNESCO’s fields of competence in education, the natural and social sciences, culture and communication. Through our network, higher education and research institutions all over the globe pool their resources, both human and material, to address pressing challenges and contribute to the development of their societies, with particular interest in the rights of vulnerable populations of youth. We serve as a think tank and bridge builders between academia, civil society, local communities, research and policy-making, and facilitate North-South, South-South and North-South-South partnerships and most importantly youth themselves (via youth as researchers).
A Nonprofit Organisation is defined as: a trust, company or other association of persons:- Established for a public purpose, and The income and property of which are not distributable to its members or office bearers accept as reasonable compensation for services rendered. In civil society, organisations of all kinds can be found. All formed voluntary by citizens, they fall into three broad categories; Formed out of concern to assist the needy or disadvantaged people; Formed on the basis of common interest in and/or to take action on a particular subject or issue; Organisations through which people engage in a common pursuit. The key defining characteristics can be used as a checklist and guide to understand which organisations fit into the nonprofit sector. Voluntary o They are formed voluntary. There is nothing in the laws of any country that says they must be formed or stops them from being formed. There will be an element of voluntary participation in the organisation. This could be by small numbers of board members, or large numbers of members or beneficiaries giving their time voluntary. Independent o So long as they abide within the law, NPO’s are controlled by the people who have formed them, or by management boards who have been delegated either by law or members of the organisation to take on the on the responsibility of controlling and managing them. Not for profit o NPO’s may have employees, like other enterprises, who are paid for what they do. But in NPO’s, the employers – boards of management – are not paid for the work they perform on boards, other than being reimbursed for expenses they incur from performing their board duties. NPO’s may take on income-generating activities. They do not, however, distribute profits or surpluses to shareholders or members. They use this money to further the aims of their organisations. Not self-serving in aims and related values o Improve the lives and life-prospects of disadvantaged people who are unable to realize their potential of achieve their full rights in society. o Act on concerns and issues that badly affect the well being, circumstances or prospects of people of society as a whole.
