The World Council for Youth – WLCUY
The World Council for Youth (WLCUY) unites all the committees formed from the youth descendants of Lebanese origin within the WLCU. As one of the constituent bodies of the WLCU, the WLCUY is an indivisible part of the organization and serves as a forum of meeting and discussion for the Youth of Lebanese origin spread around the world, without distinction of religion, political ideology and country of residence.
The WLCUY is a great way to learn about the WLCU, and get other youth involved in understanding and sharing the Lebanese Culture and Heritage.
