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 passionate about this daunting adventure and I am emboldened by your collective support!

First identify a suitable coordinator to establish branches of your organization in selected conflict affected countries. Then guide them about your vision and mission, future programs, facilities which you hope to give, benefits to them. You must be clear in what you are going to do, you must have a funding source as well. Then give world wide publicity, organize international Conferences/Workshops involving professionals. Launching few Piolot Projects in selected countries would be better.
