Welcome to ICA's Youth Network

The International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) formed the Youth Network in 2003 to give advice, help and representation to the cooperative youth movement. Its members and adherents are young people from all nationalities, who are working together to build more just and equitable societies.

Regional Youth Committees & Networks

There are four Regional Youth Committees and Networks.

Join the Youth Network

We are a group of young people around the world working together for a better world. 


The ICA Youth Network is here to:


We represent youth who are interested in cooperatives and cooperation.


We connect youth by creating spaces for reflection, discussion and training.


We advise youth by facilitating opportunities to promote time and space for reflection, discussion, exchange, research and training.
