I am in the process of initiating a NGO which will focus on International Youth Development for young adults in conflict areas of the world. The NGO will be based in Washington D.C. and will have an international board and advisory council. 

I am overwhelmed by the wealth and breadth of online information on 'how-to' incorporate an organization, etc. I seek advice, support as I proceed in this endeavor. If you have any resources which are focused in nature that you would recommend, or are willing to provide suggestions/advice, I would warmly appreciate it!

I am doing the same thing with helpwomenheal.org. I would also appreciate the same. Could we enlarge this discussion and perhaps barter some skills. Our NGO is based in Boston. Have you started the 501c3 process as of yet?

Hi! Thanks for your kind offer. What organizations? I will email you! Patty
Sounds great, am Victor Ochen the founding Director for African Youth Initiative Network. Was in DC last month but currently back to Uganda and heading for the regional youth training in a week. Our work targets primarily the conflict affected people/communities,..get in touch please. Victor

While incorporation etc can be guided mre locally by other US based collragues- I am interested in finding some dynamic people that would eventually assist you from the conflict zones- as I mentor and believe in young people's movements and participation in the social change process in their countries-

Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bosnia, Croatia and the former Easter Europe.
