It is the mission of the National Youth Board (NYB) to act as a liaison between the youth membership of USPC and the Board of Governors by communicating the needs, ideas, and concerns of USPC youth to governing officers. NYB members provide member insight and bring forward ideas and proposals regarding important issues, as well as conduct independent projects under the direction of the national office.

Delegates of the NYB must be between 18 - 23 years of age, highly motivated and dedicated, and have strong leadership and communication skills. It is expected that delegates maintain open communication with the members they represent, providing an efficient medium for communication in a professional manner. Their work requires regular communication with other NYB members, USPC Board Committee members, USPC staff, and the greater USPC community. 

The current NYB Chair and the previous Chair also serve as full members on the USPC Board of Governors.  In addition, members of the NYB represent the youth members on various Board and Council Committees.
