On December last year, the Coalition for Children and Youth was registered as a Non-entrepreneurial (non-commercial) legal entity at the National Agency of Public Registry (NAPR) on the basis of the revised Charter and the coalition council’s decision.

Until 13 December 2016, the Coalition for Children and Youth represented a coalition of 54 child- and youth-oriented, public member organizations working in Georgia and established on the basis of an unregistered Memorandum of Cooperation aimed at developing the current child and youth welfare system and promoting the protection of their rights.

In accordance with the revised Charter, following the Coalition’s registration and the formation of management and executive bodies, the Coalition’s authorized bodies shall, within 1 year, develop and approve the Scopes of Work (SOW) of its thematic groups, rules of operation for the temporary disciplinary commission, standards of ethical conduct for coalition members, coalition development strategy and action plan for the future.

Members of the unregistered Coalition for Children and Youth who are not founders of the Coalition have the preferential right to become members of the General Assembly of the Coalition by way of registration.
