YouthNet is a non-profit organization registered under the Registration of Societies Act 1895. It was launched on the 1st of February 2006 by a group of young Naga professionals who gave up lucrative jobs in companies for something more fulfilling.

YouthNet's mission is to help the youth acquire knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes to enable them to become self-directing, positive, productive, responsible and contributing members of society through active participation and involvement.

Apart from various programs like active citizenship, youth leadership etc, YouthNet has been assisting the Government of Nagaland in various livelihood and employment programs. YouthNet's major role in this field has been in conducting those livelihood programs, and their subsequent monitoring and evaluation. Many employment programs have been improved upon or discontinued based on YouthNet's assessment reports.
