The Southeast Asia Youth Network (SEAYN) was developed as a sub-network linked to Asia Pacific Youth Network (APYN) in May 2013 (see SEAYN TOR). It has a special characteristic as a youth network by ensuring equal participation of NS staff and Youth leaders in it. By nominating their NS youth  staffs and youth leaders (volunteers) to be members of the SEAYN, each NSs in the SEA region follows the SEAYN terms of reference which was officially endorsed by the Southeast Asia Leadership Meeting held in Singapore in March 2014.

The SEAYN aims for enhancing National Societies’ service delivery by mobilizing the resources of youth in the region and by developing the regional youth action in the aspirations for positive change. It nominates its Coordination Team in the Network and develops its action plans to allow for SEA National Societies to strengthen youth and to encourage youth initiatives through the SEAYN, while also building capacity to extend peer to peer support among the SEAYN.
